A Familiar Fin: Spreading the Word to Future Ocean Ambassadors

Yesterday, I had the privilege of reading for a hundred Kindergarteners and First Grade students at a local elementary school! As I projected the colorful illustrations of A Familiar Fin up on the screen, the children followed the storyline with wide eyes and smiles.

When I began with the usual opener– “raise your hand if you think sharks are awesome”–I was amazed to see so many little hands dart upwards. These students truly gave me hope for the future! With such open minds and excitement, these children made for a wonderful audience. I was honored to sign their books and answer all of their insightful questions about our oceans.

Yesterday’s presentation was also the first time I showed a video of my shark diving experiences in Fiji. The kids loved the video, and were so excited to put the fiction writing together with the reality of my experiences. Check out a fifteen second clip of this video on my website!
