my parent volunteer told me her 4th grade daughter was at home sick on
Monday when Mike was at our school, so Mom went to the Red Balloon that day
to get his book. Her daughter loves it, is half-way through already, and
was reading with a flashlight
I just want to tell you about an author we had visit on Tuesday to our
school. J. Michael Blumer, author of The Book of Second Chances. It is
a fantasy with wonderful writing, great descriptions, wonderful
character development, and a fun plot. It is the first in a series of 5
books which will be published soon. His web site is fantastic and he
even created a special section for the kids at Sun Path. Now that is
going the extra mile.
His presentation was wonderful. He did 4 shows of 45 minutes with
about 225 kids in each show. He had great stories to tell, wonderful
props, he gave away stuff throughout, and the kids were enthralled. He
has had a profound impact on our school and on one child in particular.
She wants to be a writer. He gave her a copy of a manuscript of his
book. Wow. She came up to me so excited that he listened to her, she is
going to be a writer you know. She told me so. And he gave her
suggestions as to how to become a writer.
I would recommend him to your school for an author visit. J Michael
Blumer is an up and coming star.
