A note from Sid's author:
Last night, Greenwood Elementary PTA invited me back to the school for their "Read-in" to discuss my book and the writing process with their students. It was a delightful evening filled with fun conversations with children of various ages about costumes, animals, and even rainbow unicorn poop! lol The children were all such a joy to talk with, and so eager to express themselves and share their own creativity. One student (Sophie) brought in a story for me to review and edit... it was a sweet story about a dog, that highlights her creative talent. She is a remarkable writer and I have no doubt she will one day have a published book in her hands! She is now spearheading a campaign at the school to start a writing club, with several eager children wanting to join in (Madi, Meagan, the other Sophie who wants to be a unicorn, and others - I hope you get your writers club!). If you follow through with it, I'll come and visit again sometime to chat with you and read your stories. And remember, the best way to improve your writing is to READ lots of books! In the meantime, please feel free to email me your stories if you'd like to. I would love to read them anytime!
Thank you to the kind kids who offered their books for me to read with them last night (I'm sorry I didn't get everyone's names);
To the charming boy who loaned me "Super Rabbit Boy Blasts Off!" to read - the book was super fun, I hope King Viking learns how to be kind in the end!
To Blaine (Blane?) who loaned me the Pirate ABC's book, "RRR," you have quite a talent for finding hidden letters!
To the sweet boy who wants to be an eagle and thinks I don't remember him! I still have not forgotten you and the 156 page novel you're reading! I hope you enjoy the read! I know you will soar to great heights!
Again, I would like to thank GWE for allowing me and Sid to be a part of your Read-a-Thon this year! You have a fantastic group of students there and it was an honor to spend time getting to know each of them.
Here are some of Sid's new friends... and two lucky winners of the Sid the Sasquatch bundle drawing (Evie and London)!
