On Friday (September 23) I got a chance to visit two elementary schools in the Mobile, AL area. I got to interact with the children at both schools and they were extremely attentive and loved the story. The first school was Fonde Elementary School...
Here I am with a group of 3rd graders in the media center. They were really smart kids who engaged with me so nicely as I discussed the book and asked them questions.
Also listening to the story were the librarian, teacher, and principal! They were all so warm and receptive! Here I am below with the principal and students.
The next stop was Mertz Elementary School!!! I was actually a student there not that long ago - the school has made some awesome improvements and is nothing like when I was there, but I did let the kindergartens I visited know that we shared a special connection in that I too was a student there!

I also visited the Southwest Alabama Regional School for the Deaf & Blind. Though I didn't read to the students I did get to visit several classes. ALL of the students at the three schools that I visited were wonderful and they all made my day .
