Laurin’s author visits to classrooms are 20-40 minutes. They include a reading of the book, dialogue with students, and Q&A. Interactive activities may also be included. Dialogue responds to questions raised by children and may also touch on:

  • The idea that toys, colors, clothes, and play can be for anyone, and don’t need to be limited by gender.
  • How to be a good friend when other children teased.
  • How each person is different and what we appreciate about those differences.

“Laurin’s interaction with our community through her special read aloud and conversation really resonated with the kids. She was able to field so many curious questions about ‘boy and girl stuff’ in a kind and informative way and helped us cultivate authentic conversation about uniqueness and differences.” —Alison Lanza, 2nd Grade Teacher, CPE2, East Harlem
