Harriet's Horrible Hair Day

Harriet's Horrible Hair Day





Dawn loves to attend school book fairs!

Dawn is pleased to attend school book fairs to sign copies of her book Harriet's Horrible Hair Day.

Of course, sometimes travel is expensive ... so there are a few things to consider.

1. Dawn is happy to visit local school book fairs at no cost. Local visits include most of Massachusetts and parts of Rhode Island.

2. If the book fair location is outside the local area, there is a fee for the cost of travel.

3. If air travel is required, the school is responsible for all travel fees as well as providing overnight lodging.


Combine an author visit with your book fair!

Invite Dawn to your school to do an author visit at the same time you are holding your book fair. The children will learn how Harriet's Horrible Hair Day evolved from an idea into a picture book.

Here are what teachers and facilitators say:

Thank you for sharing your writing experiences with our students. Everyone was so excited about your visit! I spoke with several of the teachers afterward, and they felt your book talk was extremely beneficial and educational for the students -- especially to learn "first hand" how difficult it can be to write, illustrate, publish a book with all the time and effort involved.

The students are thoroughly enjoying your book! I used it as my main book for the first week of school. We did interactive writing about it, made a list of all the words you used instead of using "said" all the time. It's a favorite choice at independent reading time!

Our fifth-grade students loved hearing you talk about being an author. It's especially interesting to learn what happens "behind the scenes" of having a book published. The children are talking about writing during the summer.  What a great way to end our school year!
