“Our 1st and 2nd grade students enjoyed a wonderful author/illustrator visit from Wendy Wahman. Wendy provided an informative and entertaining slide show that gave some of her history as an illustrator and as an author, showed students what the process for writing and illustrating was like, and gave students the opportunity to become illustrators themselves as she read her book, “Snowboy 1,2,3.” Highly recommended!”
– Chris Robert, Teacher-Librarian, Roxhill Elementary
“It was a delight having Wendy Wahman visit schools in the Tri-Cities. The students were fully involved with her assembly presentations and loved getting a chance to draw along with the artist. During art workshops with smaller groups, Wendy lead students through an exploration of lines and imagination. The books the students created were wonderful, showing the power of free flowing creativity. Even hesitant students found they had an artistic flare. To those looking for an author/illustrator to talk to students, I can recommend Wendy Wahman as a great choice.”
– Carol Berry, The Literacy Connection, Kennewick, WA
“Wendy Wahman’s presentation made it very clear to the students that ANY of them can do it; anyone can take the things they are passionate about (animals, art, and writing, for Wendy) and make a career out of it. Wendy shared her creative process of bringing an idea to fruition. We all enjoyed watching Wendy’s creativity in action as she transformed squiggles into whimsical works of art.”
