School Visit!


Meet Jill Mowdy, Super Librarian!

Ms. Annie Bigelow from Mrs. Nelson's Toy & Book Shop.



Today I enjoyed paying a visit to the school library of Cullen Elementary in Glendora, CA. The kids were really great.  They asked some really good questions. I only hope I answered them clearly. We had fun reading books. While we were waiting for my books to arrive, I had the rare pleasure of reading aloud one of my favorites, The Missing Piece by Shel Silverstein. (I love singing the song!)

Both Rocket Town and The Sea of Bath were well received, which is pretty cool!  I would like to thank school librarian, Jill Mowdy, the teachers, and the students of Cullen Elementary for having me.  Thanks to Annie Bigelow for bringing the books from Mrs. Nelson's and handling the orders.  

Hey!  Check this out...

It's a reading dragon that spans the entire half of the room!  Now if I understand this correctly, each dragon scale represents a book read and reviewed by a student.  This dragon is quite impressive in person!  The photo doesn't do it justice.  The Reading Dragon was created by: Jill Mowdy.

Thank you Mrs. Nelson's for allowing me to participate in Saturday Storytime!  This is such an incredible store!

I would like to extend a special thanks to Caitlin for running the event and coming up with yet another awesomely creative activity for the kids.

This was a nice surprise too...
