I try to maintain a balance of reading, making, and thinking in our library. For about 2 weeks earlier this month, we were definitely heavy on reading! We were getting ready for visiting author Henry Cole to rock our world! If you are a teacher or librarian, I HIGHLY suggest looking into having him visit your school. He is a true gentleman, extremely entertaining, wonderful with kids and adults, and has so much to say about the writing process. I had several parents comment that their kids came home talking about him and kids are still asking for his books. This is the second time we have had him at LC and again he amazed us. In preparation for his visit, we read his books, examined his art, watched video interviews and even tried to recreate chickens in his honor!
Thank you Lewis and Clark PTA for supporting the love of literature!
