The party usually starts out with my introduction and a short story of how I got started writing books for children. It's pretty much like an author visit at school. Afterwards, a reading commences from one of my books. The children asks questions once the reading is finished, then refreshments are served. As a token of my appreciation, an autographed copy of my latest book is given to the children in attendance.
The experience is very rewarding for me as well as the children. While many books are read, they meet very few authors.
