My school library was the first stop on Peter Brown's YOU WILL BE MY FRIEND! book tour.
Every school week should start with Peter Brown dropping by your school library. During his presentation and book signing, he made each child feel special and comfortable. He treated each child with respect and infused the perfect amount of humor into his presentation. My students will remember Peter's visit for the rest of their days. Thank you, Peter Brown!
