What a delightful Saturday afternoon I spent on September 15 at the Kirkwood Public Library. Alexis O’Neill, author of THE RECESS QUEEN, LOUD EMILY, and ESTELA’S SWAP, was there to share some “kitz and kajammer” fun with everyone–young and old. By the end of the presentation, kids in the audience had jumped and danced and yelled. What kid (of eager viewer like me) wouldn’t love being part of such a lively author visit.
Do yourself a favor and open up at least one of Alexis O’Neill’s endearing picture books.
