Surfer ChickSurfer Chick is stoked that her superstar surfer dad is going to teach her how to surf. She is nervous and a little scared that she will not be a great surfer, but when she chooses to be brave, Chick learns that she might be totally awesome after all!
I met author Kristy Dempsey when I was presenting at the CERRA Induction Symposium a few weeks ago. Her book Surfer Chick was published in May of 2012, and it is a beautiful book with an inspirational story for our youngest students. Kristy is a native of South Carolina, and is now living in Brazil with her family. She is also a teacher and next year will be her first year as a librarian! How cool to have your own librarian be an author!
I was so excited when Kristy mentioned that she offers free Skype visits! She will visit with your class through Skype for 15 minutes for free or 45 minutes for $50 to talk about her books and the writing process. Of course the time difference could pose a problem so if you cannot work out a good time, she will accept questions from your class and send you a video response. Check out the trailer for her book and follow her on Twitter @kristydempsey
