Wonder Wednesday #305 (Breakfast with Books)

Wonder Wednesday - Stanley Will Probably Be Fine by Sally J. Pla

*We had our FIFTH "Breakfast with Books" on Thursday, February 13, 2020.

*Sally J. Pla has been our mentor for the "Kids Need Mentors" Program.

*This has been such a valuable and rewarding experience.

*During February, we read her novel Stanley Will Probably Be Fine as our fifth "Breakfast with Books" book club selection.

*We also have been sharing her first novel The Someday Birds as our class read aloud.

*The cool part is that we have been able to interact with her via email and Skype during the reading of both novels.

*This morning we wrapped up the reading experience of Stanley Will Probably Be Fine by gathering in. our classroom, enjoying breakfast treats and Skyping with the author herself.

*Sally was wonderful and awoke bright and early San Diego time which was 6:30 AM.  Now that is dedication!!!

*The readers had the chance to share their comments and ask questions about Sally's second novel.

*The time went by so quickly, we had so much fun, and learned more about the life of a writer...

  1. what does it take to be a successful author ? I would say that initial reviews and marketing definitely boost your book. I used to get a few reviews and also promote my book. Hopping to be in the top 100 genre lists and see better sales this Christmas season…
