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.

SUPER Skype Visit - in Oklahoma!


A Terrific School Visit Picture

Kids from a 3rd grade class in Oklahoma
I Skyped with today - May 6th 2014
I read to them from Taconi and Claude, showed some Aussie aboriginal artifacts, and chatted about the craft of writing, where ideas come from, and how to HOOK readers with powerful and active words - paint word pictures!  They are reading my Kangaroo Clues and Down Under Calling at the moment.
There were lots of questions to answer and a few laughs and giggles.  Terrific enthusiasm. And none of this could have come about without the help of a dedicated and willing teacher.  My thanks to Mrs Hime - awesome lady!

I felt so jazzed when the visit ended.  I rushed out and told my husband (who was gardening) all about it.  I just love flying in on my Magic Carpet of Books and telling kids about the magic of books.


***************************



It is AMAZING where SKYPE can fly my Magic Carpet of BOOKS!! Earlier this month it was to a hospital classroom. Next week it is to Casablanca, MOROCCO!
