As part of the nationwide Children’s Book Week (May 13-19), Co-op School students join kids around the country in celebrating reading. We paired together with Greenlight Bookstore to bring in the amazing children's book author Tad Hills, author of How Rocket Learned to Read and Duck & Goose. It was a great opportunity for students to meet a real, live author, and get excited about reading!
The real Rocket!!
Tad explained how books are made and showed us pictures of the printer and factory where his books are made.
Then he read his awesome book How Rocket Learned to Read.
Tad showed us how to make Duck using felt shapes and "fit the shapes together like a puzzle."
When he moved the eyebrow and beak Duck looked angry.
Finally, he painted a beautiful picture of Duck for our library! Thanks Tad!
