A MAGIC CARPET to READING


TEACHERS
are beginning to gear up for the new school year.

Lots of planning, enthusiasm, and imagination!
.
not to mention
HARD WORK!
.
 
A love of reading is a joy, and a practical
lifetime resource for all your students. 

I would love to fly my
Magic Carpet of Books

into your classroom or school library.


Picture books also.


SKYPE MAKES it HAPPEN!
Nothing encourages reading and writing like meeting
and chatting with a real life author.

I grew up in Australia, but I now live in Oregon--
so some of my books have Aussie critters and themes.


I show aboriginal artifacts, and chat about writing and where inspiration hides. I read from one of my books, and ask about their favorites. Happy to add whatever a teacher needs.
I conclude with a fun Q and A session.

Each SKYPE visit is tailored to suit the age of the class.

My goal is to
HOOK KIDS on READING
(especially reluctant readers)



**READ SAMPLE CHAPTERS**
and VERSES for all my BOOKS

Margot's MAGIC CARPET of BOOKS goes GLOBAL!



Send Your Books GLOBAL--
the SKYPE Way!




The HOW
 Skype makes it happen-
like Magic!



The WHY
To reach the widest possible number of kids
and HOOK them on the Joy of Reading.

 

The WHERE
ANYWHERE there is a Skype Connection, and an enthusiastic
teacher who wants class English to thrive! PLUS-- time zones
that are workable for both the teacher and the writer.




 
Below are some of the countries I have
flown my Magic Carpet of Books into:




Numerous USA Classrooms


Plus
India
Australia

New Zealand


Kazakhstan


Skype is FREE to join--
and your Visit can also be free.
What teacher doesn't LOVE a 'freeby.'


WRITERS
A webcam, a computer, and a published book, plus a Skype
 account, and you are all set. Register with Education Skype,
and look for teachers who are eager to give their classes a
reading and writing boost. Let teachers on social media 

know you are eager to visit.

TEACHERS:
This is a wonderful way to HOOK those reluctant readers
on READING, and get others interested in writing their
own stories.


HEY-- It's FREE!  What can you lose?


My Skype visit makes kids aware of 'The Wonder of Words.'
Of how to choose words that sparkle with meaning, and string

them together in a way that paints vivid mental pictures with
 sentences and paragraphs. I show how a book is born, 
developed, and published. A book reading
 + a fun Q and A follows.

CONTACT MARGOT

Reading is a Magic Carpet Ride
to a lifetime of fun, adventure, 

and learning.


And AMAZON is in many countries
that teach English.
