Bobbi Katz Author Visit Kit
Bobbi Katz believes poems can be springboards for learning about many subjects. While she has written picture books, chapter books, and even a biography about her hero, Nelson Mandela, she is best known for her collections of poetry and rhyming books. Her classroom workshops make students and teachers comfortable with reading and writing poetry and discovering the joy of language. Should teachers prefer, her focus could be more on Q’s and A’s that the children have about writing, the process and people involved with creating books. For grades 5 and up, or for family audiences, she combines poems that are compelling, 1st person voices with fascinating background anecdotes from American History Poems and We the People. Bobbi also gives interactive presentations for teachers and librarians on ways to use poetry to create inter-curricular connections and to help students write.
