Talking with children about reading and writing is one of my favorite things to do! I am happy to share my writing journey and tips for young writers with your students, either with an in person visit, or through a Skype virtual visit.
“Jenna Grodzicki is an engaging presenter for all ages! Her newest book, Finn Finds a Friend, is a fun book about a lemon shark who is misunderstood based on his appearance. In her presentation to our school, Jenna shared lots of interesting details about her research and how she chose a lemon shark for the main character. Students of all ages loved hearing from this talented, new author. We can’t wait to have her back!” – Stefanie Anderson, Principal, Lake Garda Elementary School
“Jenna was a delight to have speak to our students at our annual Author Night! Her speech about the writing process was informative and engaging as she shared her book Finn Finds a Friend. Students loved hearing about how she got the idea to write a story about a lemon shark and how the research she did on these interesting animals was integrated into her story.” – Karen Drake, Instructional Coach, Reggio Magnet School of the Arts
