What a better way to celebrate books today, than by inviting the author to read...HOORAY!
As a class select your 3-5 of your favorite authors. Our class picked Eric Litwin, Mo Willems, Laura Numeroff, and Jane Yolen! Post the authors' names with their books around the room and have students select which author they would like to invite. Then, have them identify the author's name on the book and place a sticky note under it. Lastly, have the students work as a group to fill out their invitation to the author for Read Across America Day.
You fill out the last two pages for each author. Place the students invitations and the teacher invitation in a large manila envelope and mail off to your authors!
