Lucy and I are reading a Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd for her Battle of the Books and the Reading Challenge. We both LOVE the book so much that I started following an author on Twitter.
I sent her a tweet with us reading and... Ms. Lloyd responded! She thanked us and then tweeted that she loves our picture “times infinity”. She also reposted it with her memories added:
How Awesome is that !? Lucy was beyond happy. We rarely think that authors of our favorite books may not only be still among us, but also happy to connect with their fans. How cool would it be if teachers in Lucy's classes connect with the other authors? I also follow on Twitter J.K. Rowling - Author of the Harry Potter John Green -Author of “The Fault in Our Stars” Peter Reynolds the author and illustrator of famous "The Dot" and illustrator of Judy Moody series. Mo Willems' Pigeon feed and many more There are also good authors to follow on Facebook: Eric Carle, Shel Silverstein, Markus Zusak, Gillian Flynn and more. Remember, if the authors wish to remain private they would not have open public accounts on social media! Connect with them, and if you are teacher, connect your students with them.
