Would you like to bring Paul Zelinsky to your school or conference? Here are some responses from teachers at elementary schools he has visited:
• Paul Zelinsky was fantastic and I have never seen my kids have such a reaction from hearing an author/illustrator. Of course they walked in the room and said, "Can we draw"? I said yes and the room was silent.
• Awesome choice in authors!! Paul Zelinsky was excellent and I enjoyed him just as much as the kids.
• Mr. Zelinsky's message of perseverance and hard work went right along with the character building lessons we have been working on all year.
