Yesterday, Ms. Mason, the wonderful teacher of a second grade class I Skyped with last week tweeted this:

I’m not sure I can express what a thrill it is to see Carter’s smiling face. There is nothing I love more about being a writer than connecting with and inspiring young readers!
A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to present at a local library, where I was able to spend a wonderful afternoon interacting with readers.
You guys, I just really love my job, okay? (Photo sent to me via Facebook after an event at the Dallas Oregon Public Library today. Such a wonderful crowd!)

As I visit libraries and classrooms, in person or via Skype, I am constantly struck with the wonderful talent and dedication of librarians and teachers. Educators are my heroes!
That’s why I’m going to do a special giveaway, starting today, during National Library Week, just for them!

LOVE the photos and the book and the giveaway! The community of readers and educators just love getting the right book to the right reader. Enjoy every moment! Linda Mitchell, Teacher Librarian VA
Thank you so much for the chance to win!! I appreciate it!
Sorry….forgot to add that I teach 3rd grade in Southern Maine
Not sure the comment above worked… I teach middle school down the 15 from you- Corvallis!
I teach 3rd grade in southern Maine! I am always looking for great books to get my students reading!
My grade three & four kids had a wonderful skype visit with Heidi this year. They had so much fun talking and learning with her. They went immediately to our librarian and asked for Heidi’s books and now have more than one copy to share! Thank Heidi – this was definitely a highlight of our year!
We have started Hook’s Revenge, and are totally hooked. Thank you for Skypinh with us. We hope we can Skype again once we’re finished.
