Author Steve Light at Saint David's

As part of our ongoing PA-sponsored Author Series, we welcomed Steve Light to Saint David's this week. Mr. Light, a preschool teacher, author and illustrator of many popular children's books including Have You Seen My Dragon?, Have You Seen My Monster?, and The Bunny Burrow Buyers Guide, spoke to the boys in Pre-K and Kindergarten about his illustration process. He told the boys that he started to draw when he was their age, encouraged them to keep drawing, and not to be discouraged by mistakes.

Boys find it inspiring to learn about the creative process in such a tangible way from a real-life author. The PA Author Series provides our boys with this valuable opportunity.

At the end of the session, each boy was given a signed copy of Mr. Light's latest book, Swap, a tale of friendship and ingenuity, thanks to the generosity of one of our families.
