On June 11th, I visited my old stomping grounds. It was quite an experience, recalling 30 years ago in that same school, declaring that I was going to be an author someday. I read the books to the K through 3rd grade students, with some help of little volunteer “page-turners” who helped their fellow students see the illustrations. We talked about chasing dreams, summer reading, and the meaning behind the rhymes. We also had a Q&A which brought up a lot of great (and some very entertaining) questions! The kids each left with a bookmark that they agreed to use over the summer, and each teacher received a Mama Kangaroo books for their classroom. I had an amazing time with the students and I’m so glad they enjoyed it as well!
