This big surprise envelope arrived today - filled with hundreds of thank yous from the students at the Pell Elementary in Newport, RI. As part of 2016 March into Reading on March 4&5, I did two school visits at the Pell Elementary and one at Melville Elementary in Portsmouth, RI. A humongous thank you to librarian Stacey Lyon for sending these to me. :-)
The children were simply fabulous - I had a wonderful two days on Aquidneck Island. In its 13th year, the March into Reading program is amazing.
These illustrations are AMAZING and the students' comments are PRICELESS. The kids mention their favorite "Shennen Bersani" book, and pretty much all of my books got a mention. :)
