You never know how you’re going to engage your young person with books. I love series reading because the entry point into the story becomes a safe home you’ve already visited. That is for the second, third and fourth book.
How do we hook a new reader enough to acquaint themselves with a set of characters and a premise in the first book?
I worked with my son at Epilogue Productions.com to visually demonstrate how I put myself into every character I write. But really these videos are for fun. Laugh with your students or kids. Visit Sylvia McNicoll Youtube for more videos of The Great Mistake Mysteries.
