SOUTHRIDGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL Lewisville, TX USA
JERAMEY GIVES KIDS A CHOICE AT SOUTHRIDGE
In March 2017, I visited Southridge Elementary in Lewisville, Texas. This was a particularly exciting visit for me because not only was it my first time talking about my new book series, it was also my first official Authors for Earth Day event. Fortunately, the two things went hand in hand: I got to talk about how ignoring climate change and other environmental problems on our planet led to the ravaged earth in my future-set series. As we talked, the kids were incredibly enthusiastic about protecting our planet and its inhabitants, and in the end they decided to donate to the World Wildlife Fund. Here's our "thumbs up for Earth Day" photo!
