Alouette Library Learning Commons: Primary Story Time

Be your own Author

We read a book called The Library Mouse by Daniel Kirk on Epic.

Sam really inspired me to see myself as an author and start writing about what I know.

If you would like to start writing your own books, here are three ways you can make your own books without using staples or glue.

Tiffany Stone

Tiffany Stone was kind enough to offer a Zoom Author Visit on May 13, 2020.  There were 100 students and teachers who participated.  Our Zoom Room was filled to capacity by 1:03pm.  We got to listen to her read her new book Knot Cannot and we got to see the snake that inspired the story!  Tiffany sent me some links and resources that I wanted to share with you.  All of her books will be in the library when you come back to school!

Tiffany Stone is a children's poet, picture book author and editor. She loves playing with words, especially writing rhymes, penning puns and using a lot of alliteration. Tiffany lives by the forest in Maple Ridge, BC, Canada, with her family and a plethora of pets, including two snakes.



*Ebook versions of my picture books Tree Song, Tallulah Plays the Tuba and Knot Cannot are available from the FVRL via the Libby app.
