I don't remember where I learned about the site, Skype an Author, but it is great! Through the site I contacted Mary Amato who wrote Please Write In This Book, among other things. We set up a Skype session for this morning. She read one of her picture books to my 2nd grade students when they came to the library. The students were just fascinated. It was fun to see how excited they got. I did this as part of my weekly Mystery Reader (which was an idea from Beth Newingham's website). Some of you who also do Mystery Reader might want to check out the Skype an Author site and set up a session for your students.
