I had a wonderful morning yesterday, reading to all the 2nd graders as well as some 3rd graders at Grand View Elementary school. This is my third year of sharing with the students there, and it is very rewarding to have so many interested, smiling faces. They seemed to enjoy The Golden Rule, and it was fun to see how many of them recognized former characters from my previous books. It’s also fun to have them request re-reading of favorites! (Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, Gimme-Jimmy and Manner-Man were the most popular requests in yesterday’s reading.)
The students also liked the fact that the Grand View is the name of the school in The Golden Rule. Grand View was named a Blue Ribbon school in 2015, which is quite an honor.
Thank you, Grand View, for a grand morning…!!!
