Author Sandra Markle Visits Lotspeich

To call Sandra Markle a prolific children’s author is a bit of an understatement. Throughout her writing career, Markle has written over 200 children’s books about the animal kingdom and science. Her What If You Had … series, which is about the many different traits of animals, from ears to tails, is especially popular with elementary-age students. She shared her talents with Lotspeich students in late April, talking about her work and telling fascinating stories about her research. Markle said of being an author, “It lets me go do amazing things I couldn’t do otherwise.” She told students about camping out with penguins in Antartica and witnessing a pod of whales swimming. She answered many questions and also performed science experiments.
