I was all set to use my iPhone to shoot “My Weird Read-A-Loud” today when I realized that everything was reversed on the screen, so if I held up a book cover, all the letters would appear backwards. So I went back to using my MacBook Pro with Firefox, which seems to work fine except for the fact that I can’t see myself at all. My screen is just black. No idea why. Yes, I tried all the usual fixes—I restarted my computer, switched browsers, tried another computer, emptied my cache. Nothing worked. As soon as I click GO LIVE, my screen goes black. Anyway, the important thing is that YOU folks can see and hear me. It doesn’t matter if I can. So I’ll keep shooting it this way until I can figure out a solution to the problem. Maybe there’s no solution. Maybe it’s a Facebook thing. Anyway, keep watching. I’m doing the best I can. ... See MoreSee Less

Your kids don’t HAVE to watch My Weird Read-A-Loud every weekday right here at 2pm east coast time. You could use it as a bedtime story. Watch ANYTIME. ... See MoreSee Less

June seems like a good time to discuss the future of My Weird Read-A-Loud. When the pandemic began and all my spring school visits were cancelled, I thought I’d try reading on Facebook Live for all the kids stuck at home. The response was terrific, and I decided to do it every weekday. I’ve done 57 so far. These can be viewed for free here and on my web site. If my calculations are correct, my 100th Read-A-Loud will be on July 31. That will be the last one. Starting in September (when hopefully kids are in school again), I’ll go back to doing individual school visits, but only ONLINE for the remainder of 2020. If your school might be interested in a “virtual author visit” with me in September-December, have the librarian or PTA email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I’ll send you pricing and other details. I’ll tell you right now that my virtual school visits will be fun, like My Weird Read-A-Loud, and also educational. The best part is, geography will no longer be an issue. I can do a virtual visit no matter WHERE your school is located.Thanks for sharing my read alouds with your kids. I hope you’ll consider inviting me to their school too.Cheers,Dan ... See MoreSee Less
