Nadia: The Girl Who Couldn’t Sit Still

Do you know about the 14-year-old gymnast who made history at the Olympics? If not, then join me for a closer look at Nadia: The Girl Who Couldn’t Sit Still, a biography of Olympic Gold Medalist Nadia Comaneci.

Perfect for 2nd-5th graders, this program begins with a reading of Nadia: The Girl Who Couldn’t Sit Still, then shares my writing process as well as tips for young writers, and ends with a Q&A—time for kids to ask questions about research, writing, and publishing.

Also included, a sneak peak at my next book along with biography reading recommendations based on each child’s interest. (Do you love sports, singing, or science? I know a book about a real person who shares your interest!)
