Visiting Author

Today David Catrow came to visit our building.

For each presentation...K/1   2/3   4/5  he did 6 illustrations.  They were wonderful.  We are not trying to decide what to do with them.

In preparation we read many of his books.

My class decided their favorite was I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! Check out our painting project!
It was a fabulous day!!
