Mum and I have just got back from library night up at my school.
It began with a great presentation by Kathi Appelt, author of True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp. She talked about the process of writing the story (she starts with a place first) and how she became a writer (her first grade teacher, Mrs Bell, was a major part of that!)
Then off to the library for activities and games, like book twister!
Walking through the story, ‘The Kissing Hand’ by Audrey Penn
And making a raccoon (since raccoons feature in both the guest author’s book and ‘The Kissing Hand’)
Mum and I even managed to snuggle up in a library corner and read a few books from the shelf before heading home.
