Author Shares Writing Tips With Norwalk Pupils

All books start with an idea, author Daryl Cobb told Wolpit Elementary students Thursday morning. The singer, songwriter, performer and author of 11 children’s books visited the school as part of the school's annual "Author Day" assembly.

With a guitar around his neck, Cobb used a PowerPoint presentation to engage the kids with his songs, such as “ Daddy, Did I Ever Say? I Love You, Love You, Every Day,” and stories, “Do Pirates Go to School?”

Cobb, who lives in New Jersey, told the kindergarten, first- and second-graders that he finds ideas for stories from his family and daily life.  He encouraged the kids to do the same.

Every year, Wolfpit invites a children’s author to speak to students about what inspires them to write. "It is an all-encompassing presentation on the creative process they go through, from coming up with ideas to the finished product," said parent Carol Jordanides, who helped organize the event.
