It was my absolute pleasure to visit Great Lakes Elementary School this past week!
I spoke with all 400+ students, divided into 3 presentations. This was my first presentation for PLASTICKINGDOM, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Well, my fears and anxieties were immediately banished. The students were well-prepared for my visit by the dedicated staff at the school, and they were ready to listen, and ask questions about plastics, the environment, and my experiences as an author/illustrator. We talked about making decisions that have positive impacts on the word around around us, as well as not being afraid to make mistakes and challenge ourselves creatively.
The day went so well, and it has rekindled my passion to share this book and its message with others.
Do you have a school, group, or organization that is interested in taking-up the fight against plastic pollution? LELANI and THE PLASTIC KINGDOM is starting to have an impact! I'd love to visit and talk to you about how we can all make a difference in the PLASTICKINGDOM. Please contact me HERE for details!
Keep it plastic-free, friends.
PS - Mrs. Brieden is a phenomenal teacher and the best little sister a big author/illustrator brother could ask for :)
