The boys were delighted by the show and fascinated as David and Miriam explained how they had created the puppets and the mechanism that controls their movements. David then read aloud his latest book: Interrupting Chicken: The Elephant of Surprise, and talked in detail about the writing/drawing process behind it. Riveted by the show and presentation, the boys eagerly asked questions about David's approach to writing, and all received signed copies of his book.
By the end of this spring, all grades will experience an author visit, thanks to the vision and efforts of PA Author Series Co-Chairs Liz Carey and Ann Roberts. These special opportunities to interact in person with published authors inspire our boys to find their voices as authors/illustrators, and assist them in becoming confident, effective writers.
