Last night, I visited Knapp Elementary School in Knapp, Wisconsin, for a literacy celebration. It was easy to see Principal Kristin Humphrey is a reading specialist by training–books are celebrated everywhere in the school! I especially loved these displays of artwork related to my book A ROCK CAN BE…
The kids and I read a few books and poems together, including my just-released IF YOU WERE THE MOON. They did a great job spinning, whispering, and playing tug of war! I think they could all take on the moon’s jobs now:>)
We also wrote a couple of poems, including this spider one, inspired by an image of a firework exploding in the sky like a great red spider.
And in the Q&A, these delightful kids complimented my hair and glasses;>) And also asked great questions about favorite books and authors, publishing timelines, and more.
Best of all, each student got to take home a book of his or her very own! What a great event to emphasize the joy and power of books:>)
Thanks, Knapp Elementary School, for having me visit!
