Tedd Arnold Author Visit Kit
"There is nothing more rewarding for an author than seeing and hearing that their books are being read, enjoyed, discussed and read again. That's why I love visiting schools and classrooms. Seeing young faces light up, sharing in their laughter, responding to their questions, and marveling at their writings or the hallway artwork that has been inspired by my books. That's why I visit schools!" —Tedd Arnold
