Park View Elementary School

May 5, 2010

Today I visited the first graders at Park View Elementary School.

I simplified the presentation for my young audience. I spoke briefly about the different types of writing that people do. Then, I talked about a couple of my books including The Backyard Flower Garden for Kids. I talked about this particular book because my niece is in the class and a photo of her is in the book.

It was a fun time with the first graders. I was surprised that they all knew who Abraham Lincoln was when I showed them a picture of his statue in the Lincoln Memorial. Bright kids. 🙂
