I will be sharing Steam Train, Dream Train with some very excited students this week...
Author Sherri Duskey Rinker will be visiting my school next Tuesday!
Thank you to our amazing local bookstore Red Balloon Bookshop for making this visit possible.
Sherri was kind enough to finish a few of my sentences starters via email:
- The best thing about school visits is... meeting
the students: they always inspire and impress me ---
and make me laugh!
- Picture Books are... life changing, inspiring,
formative. Art and poetry, visual and verbal.
- Some of my favorite books to read with kids (other
than my own) are... I love, love, love Harry
Potter, the whole series: pure genius.
I'm also a MAJOR SkippyJon Jones
fan and I think Judy Schachner is amazing. I always
learn a little something in every Magic
Treehouse book. Oh, and Captain
Underpants and Diary of a
Wimpy Kid: I laugh at some goofy thing,
- One more thing... Even though my dad grew up in West Virginia and two of my sisters are in North Carolina, I'm a northern girl --- born and raised in the Chicago area. I think I'm from the south (grit-loving, "y'all" and all), but I'm really not. Shhh!... please do not tell me.
My students have also really enjoyed her first book Goodnight, Goodnight Construction site.
