CLiF would like to introduce or re-introduce you to David Martin of Lyndonville, VT. David likes to write books about animals for new readers. He only saw himself as a writer after reading lots of books to his own kids, and never thought he would leave New York City.

Watch a clip of David’s presentation from CLiF’s Virtual Author’s Series.

Things to think about:

  • David has turned books into songs and songs into books. Is the inspiration the same?
  • How did being a teacher impact your books?
  • Why do you like to write books for brand new readers?
  • Do you write books that rhyme? Does that impact if it can become a song?
  • Why do write series like Peep and Ducky and Piggy and Dad?

Here are a few ways to get to know David’s work better:

CLiF has created literacy activities for students of all ages here. Here are some that would go nicely with David’s work:

One response to “David Martin, Author/Songwriter

  1. David came many times to the South Burlington public library. He was great with the kids,especially his belly button book. I lost his address when I moved to Connecticut. Can you send me his address or email?
