Jeremy's Muffler--Assembly

Jeremy’s loving but forgetful Aunt Alice knits him an impossibly long muffler which causes many problems, but also provides Jeremy with an opportunity to be a hero. This assembly follows the story from a wisp of an idea to a finished book, using rough drafts, letters, and the book dummy. I read the book wearing a muffler of my own. The session ends with questions and answers about books and writing. The assembly is suitable for grades K-3. It can be done with mixed grades, up to 200 students, but is more successful with a somewhat smaller group. The presentation runs about 40 minutes, followed by a Q & A session of 5-15 minutes, depending on the students’ age.
