Thank You, Young School!

Thursday April 2, 2009

I just returned from a two day visit at the Young School in Saco, Maine and I had the BEST time! The kids were great. They treated me like a celebrity! I especially enjoyed how each class had used one of my books to create a project. These were posted on the bulletin boards throughout the school. One class came up with new ideas for a Mr. Magee adventure (they were written and illustrated by the students on light bulb shaped paper). Another class invented their own cars with detailed pictures. Yet another board depicted an intricate camping scene, complete with an excellently rendered Mr. Magee and Dee! I was so impressed by all of the displays, and how cleverly the students had used their imaginations. Great job!

Thank you to the students, staff, P.T.O., and parents at the Young School. It was a visit I will never forget!
