Leah Moser’s visit to our school was amazing! She shared her writing life and her first book ‘I am a Thundercloud’ with our Kindergarten and 1st grade classes and they couldn’t stop smiling. Her experience as a teacher showed, as she knew exactly how to structure her presentation and field questions from the students. We loved being one of her very first school visits and look forward to reading more of her books!

We were lucky to have author Leah Moser visit our school and share her debut picture book, I Am a Thundercloud. The visit was geared towards our primary students in grades kindergarten through second grade but the powerful message it sends about recognizing and responding to emotions is important for all children and adults alike. Leah started by sharing her writing process and background using photos and an engaging presentation. She encouraged students to keep working towards their dreams and goals with her story of becoming a writer. The highlight of the visit was when Leah shared her book, I Am a Thundercloud. She drew the audience in with her storytelling talent and “behind the scenes” information about the book. The story in which the main character experiences anger like a thundercloud is relatable to all. It sends the message that all emotions are acceptable and that there are productive ways to work through them. In addition to the writing process presentation and reading of her book, Leah took the time to answer questions with patience and enthusiasm and sign books. The VES library has a signed copy that students are excited to check out. Leah’s author visit was one that will be remembered fondly and a highlight of the library program this school year. I highly recommend having Leah Moser visit your school to share her story and her books. 

Here are some responses from students when asked about Leah’s book: 

“It’s really awesome. It talks about feelings and how friends can help.” - 2nd grader 
“This story helped me learn what to do when I’m angry.” - 1st grader 
“I love this book. My favorite part is the friends at the end.” - Kindergartener
