I’m so excited to let you know that my book, Once Upon an Elephant is a finalist in the Children’s Choice Book Awards in the grades 3-4 category (all ages can vote in each category). This awards program is held by the Children’s Book Council and the International Reading Association. To help promote school participation, I’m holding a Twitter contest for Ohio schools: one teacher will win a free full-day author visit for his or her school for next year. Each teacher at your school can enter TWO times. Here’s how:
- Have your students watch the 5-minute video of “The Story Behind the Story of Once Upon an Elephant,” then tweet, “My class watched The Story Behind the Story of #OnceUponanElephant. Yours should too! @LindaStanek https://vimeo.com/209117297 ”
- Have your students vote in the Children’s Choice Book Awards, then tweet, “My class voted in CCBA17. Yours should too! @LindaStanek https://goo.gl/yQ0pv3 https://vimeo.com/209117297“
To show students my “Story Behind the Story” video, go here for vimeo: https://vimeo.com/209117297
