Short Session Description: Empowering Children to Connect, Collaborate and Take Action through Reading and Writing Dynamic Nonfiction

Full Session Description
: What if non-fiction was described as REAL, and fiction was categorized as NOT REAL? When nonfiction is well written, kids love it...and they can learn how to write it. Award-winning children’s science author Seymour Simon and his wife/collaborator, former Sesame Street Creative Director Liz Nealon, have created a wealth of interactive writing experiences for middle-grade children on his Webby Honoree and ALA “Great Websites for Kids” selected website,

Writing Wednesdays, SeeMore Explorer nature observations and an ongoing thread of environmental activism are all regular features of his Seymour Science blog. Learn how you can harness kids’ love of technology and utilize the best of digital media to engage even reluctant readers and writers in this inspiring session from the co-founders of StarWalk Kids Media, a powerful digital book collection designed for streaming access by schools and libraries worldwide.
