award-winning author and illustrator
Brooklyn, NY USA
SCHOOL VISITS: K - 5
I demonstrate my creative process from inspiration to final book. Each program is tailored to specific grade levels. I show children how story ideas come from their lives and imaginations with clear examples from my books. I show them how to develop those ideas, reinforcing much of what they are learning in their classroom. I also sketch in each program, showing basic drawing techniques that make drawing more approachable. Students leave my program inspired to write and draw.

PETER GIVES KIDS CHOICE AT RUSH
I just received a letter from the Wildlife Conservation Society thanking me and the students of Rush Intermediate School for the $400 donation. During my Authors for Earth Day visit, I announced the winning organization over the loud speaker from the main office and the entire school cheered. The children were pleased that the organization that helps all wildlife was the winner!
