A school librarian in Seoul, Korea talks about the Skype chat her students had with Margie Palatini
Margie Palatini recently Skyped with the elementary school students of Yongsan International School of Seoul (YISS) in Seoul, South Korea. Here's what the school librarian there had to say about Margie's online chat:
"A virtual visit can be a more daunting task because of the slight disconnect the author can have with the audience; however, this was truly not the case while visiting with Margie Palatini! Palatini's interactions with the YISS audience were informative, expressive, and quite entertaining! When she read her stories to the students, she made the characters jump off the page! From the very beginning of planning to the end of the visit was an effortless and enjoyable experience. In the future, we would love for Palatini to either have a virtual visit or an in person visit with us again!"
