They were fascinated by how you draw art right in front of them! And your research about sharks! I was surprised how much 4's and 5's can get out of your presentation! I had no idea how much of the book author and illustrator visit would impact children.

Her program was well prepared, interactive, engaging and kept even our wiggliest kids in their seats. As a librarian wanting to share the magic of reading with a diverse group of children, I'm delighted by Tracy's commitment to representing diverse characters in her artwork… [The students’] resulting enthusiasm for books is my motivation for bringing in guest artists and I certainly hope we will get Tracy to come back again!
