One of Diane Z. Shore's favorite parts of being a children's author is visiting schools, where she gets to inspire the kids to read and write. As a read-aloud advocate, Shore knows that many children are reluctant readers and need that extra encouragement. The author visits provide the children with the background on the books and an opportunity to interact with the author, which motivates them to want to read. Per Shore, reading is the best way for children to increase their vocabulary and is an essential part of their success in school. In turn, she is equally inspired by being around the children during these visits, often getting ideas for her next book.
