Yuna’s Cardboard Castles
is about a young girl who uses origami and the language of play to bridge the language barrier and build new friendships. The story covers important socio-emotional issues related to the Asian American experience and the challenges of moving to a new place… the perfect complement to AAPI activities.
Whether you have students from foreign countries or would like to broaden your cohorts’ understanding of other cultures, this Author Visit will cover it all. As a bonus, students will get to create an origami piece of their own, huge in the world of STEM right now as NASA launches origami satellites into space for the very first time!
Here’s what I’ll cover on my visit:
• Yuna’s Cardboard Castles Read Aloud
• Q&A and Book Chat
• Show & Tell Origami
• Small group origami boat folding
• Book signing
My fee is $800 for a one-day author visit in the Charlotte, NC area. This includes a maximum of four presentations and lunch with the students or teachers. (*please contact me for rates outside of Charlotte)
