Author visit for grades 1 & 2!

Author/ illustrator Grace Lin will visit Lawrence School on Tuesday, March 17. Thanks to the generosity of the PTO, she will meet with grades 1 & 2 to talk about her work, show students how a picture book is made, and lead them in a draw-along of one of her characters!

Ms. Lin is the author of many picture books, chapter books and early readers. Ling and Ting, Not Exactly the Same was a summer reading choice for students entering grade 2. She also wrote the illustrated chapter book, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, which was named a Newbery Honor book in 2010.

We have been preparing for her visit by reading her picture books in the library and in classrooms. You will find many of her titles at the public library. Her website contains a list of her published works and activities to go along with her books:

All are looking forward to this special event!
