Look What Came In The Mail! Connecting With Author Bob Staake!
Last week, kindergarteners had a great time reading Bob Staake's new book, My Pet Book! To read more about the fun they had creating their own pet books, check out my blog post - Kindergarteners Pick Out Their Own Pet Books! After blogging about our lesson, I tweeted about it too!
Yesterday I went to my teacher mailbox and found a wonderful surprise! Bob Staake saw my tweet and blog post about our pet books and wrote the boys and girls a note, complete with artwork and a book plate for our library copy of his book! My kindergarteners will be so excited to find out that Mr. Staake liked our pet books. It is such a thrill for students (and librarians) to connect with the authors that write our cherished book friends! Thank you Mr. Staake!!
