She loved teaching and when she wondered what she was going to do when she grew up, Alva thought,"Why not write fun books for children?"

Alva Sachs earned her Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Illinois, and holds a Master’s of Education Degree from Northern Illinois University.

After sixteen years of elementary school teaching, what was originally just a thought became reality, and in 2008, Alva published her first children’s picture book. Circus Fever. Her other books titled On Your Mark, Get Set, Go! and I'm 5 are all award-winning titles for Alva.

She is a Board Member of Reading Is Fundamental of Southern California that helps to support literacy for underserved children in the greater Los Angles, California area by building home libraries for children. As a member of many other organizations, Alva's commitment to children and reading continues to grow. Encouraging reading and writing for children at a young age helps them to explore their own ideas and imagination.

Creating stories for the sheer joy of reading was the catalyst for Alva to share her writing with children. Join Alva and read for fun where adventure is around every corner! Whether Alva is visiting schools, libraries, literacy festivals, or just story-time events, you can be sure it will be fun for everyone!

Do you remember what is was like to be excited about the circus? Maybe you have a little one who looks forward to the circus when it comes to town. Circus Fever by Alva Sachs is a delightful story about a little girl named Jessica who is excited about the circus! She just can't wait and is so excited! Young children will LOVE this story! My son loved the imagination of the character Jessica. The illustrations by Patricia Krebs are colorful and amazing and makes the delightful story come to life. This story will quickly become a bedtime story (or anytime!) favorite. For more information, check out the Author's website! I love the section on the website for kids.

This delightful book was a joy to read! I loved following Jessica on her circus adventure. The author's website (http://www.alvasachs.com) has so many resources to offer such as kids' activities to go along with the book and tips for parents, that it is well worth stopping by. The illustrations of the book are absolutely marvelous and the story is simple, imaginative and beautifully worded. Everything a children's book should be!

There are few fun books about the circus for this age group but this one has both an entertaining and age appropriate story about a little girl's love of the circus and beautiful illustrations that make the story come alive!
