Sarah’s mission is to get kids to see how awesome history can be. She does this by choosing a topic that interests them (toilets, sanitation, insects, fashion, disease) and tracing that topic through the entire course of human history. She also likes to make them laugh. As a visiting author she keeps kids engaged through active participation, funny props, and amazing visuals, and helps them make connections between their own lives and what happened in history. She also loves to help them with crafting their own writing.
“My books are a mash-up of history and science. I believe high-interest topics presented with humor and passion can go a long way toward coaxing reluctant readers into appreciating history, science, and, yes, reading books.”
