A new book is a wonderful thing. It's even better when you have friends to share it with! The first graders were so excited to get new books from the book fair! The author visits were some of the best we've had and the presentations were really relevant to our budding first grade authors and illustrators, as they are in the midst of editing their personal narrative stories for their upcoming writing celebration. They learned that all authors make changes to lines of text and how an accident in a drawing can become a beautiful illustration.
