Teaching Kids to Love to Read by Offering Crafts

Photos of young friends of mine who have read my books are posted here today.

Kitti enjoys reading about Hermes, the Messenger god.

They chose which of my nine books to read and then we talked about the books together. You can find more about them on my Books page.

One student is making a weaving craft from my Recipe and Craft Guide to Indonesia book.

Recipe and Craft Guide to Indonesia (Mitchell Lane 2011) contains 10 crafts and 10 recipes for Grades 4-8.

Another student made the Gamelan drum and we talked about the Gamelan orchestra which is well-known from Indonesia.

Ethan made a Gamelan drum with directions from Recipe and Craft Guide to Indonesia.

We watched videos of it on Youtube to hear its unique sound.

Azerica read about the Greek god Hades.

If you’re a student who has read one of my books, please leave a comment and let me know which book and what you thought about it. I’d love to hear from you!

    These look like fun ideas!
    If anyone becomes ambitious and learns how to dance in the Balinese style, tell them I’ll treat them to ice cream in June, when I come home! 🙂
