I love visiting schools and libraries. My goal for every author visit is to encourage reading, support writing and creativity, and offer a safe and positive time to talk about families, differences, and acceptance. However, the littlest ones often enjoy sharing what their dogs like to eat…or the weather. And that’s okay too!
“What a privilege it was to have children’s author, Tanya Valentine, read her new book All Bears Need Love to our four-year-old and kindergarten classes. As early childhood educators, we continually discuss the writing process and the joy of being the “author” of a story. They are inspired and energized with a new appreciation for reading and writing.” Lisa Heffner – Director, Snellville United Methodist Church Preschool & Kindergarten
“Tanya Valentine’s visit to our preschool was a wonderful addition to our special events. We were lucky to find a talented author right in Lilburn! Tanya’s reading of All Bears Need Love was interactive, fun, and educational for the children. The children and parents enjoyed the opportunity to hear the author read her book, and then bring home their very own signed copy!” Pam McClure, Good Shepherd Preschool
