Readings

I thoroughly enjoy school and library visits. I’ve written twenty craft books for kids, a picture book and features and columns for Today’s Parent Magazine. For school presentations, I bring my books along with baskets and bins of craft samples so that I can show the students all kinds of wonderful things they can make. I also enjoy discussing the process of writing a book and can show the students the steps involved in putting one together. If asked, I also like to read my picture book to the students. After answering the students' questions, I make a craft with them, usually a Button Buddy, (a comical little character from one of my books) which the students always like. With my talk, questions from the students and the craft, my presentation usually lasts around one hour.

Biography

Judy Ann Sadler was raised in a big, noisy family on a farm outside of London, Ontario. Ever since she can remember, she has loved to read, write and make things. A few years ago, she decided to combine her love of writing and crafts by preparing a proposal for a book on printmaking. She was thrilled when it was accepted by Kids Can Press. Since then, Judy Ann has written twenty craft books, a picture book and she writes features for Today’s Parent Magazine. Her books have been published in many languages around the world. Judy Ann has conducted hundreds of school and library presentations where she encourages reading and creativity through crafts. She shows students dozens of samples from her books, then she always does a craft with them. She also talks about the many steps involved in writing and publishing books. Judy Ann works part-time for the London Public Library. She lives in Lambeth (London), Ontario with her husband, three kids and a dog named Maple.
