On Friday, October 26th, three amazing authors, Mac Barnett, Yuyi Morales, and Rafael Lopez, visited Newton Collins Elementary to talk about their wonderful books as well as share advice on becoming an author and illustrator with our students. The day began with the authors eating breakfast with two students from each grade level who had won the chance to eat with their author.
After breakfast, each author presented to groups of students. 4th and 5th grade students who met with Mac Barnett all received free, signed copies of his new book, Mac Undercover (Mac B. Kid Spy #1), 2nd and 3rd grade students who met with Yuyi Morales received free, signed copies of her book, Dreamers, and Pre-K, Kindergartern, and 1st grade students who met with Rafael Lopez received free, signed copies of We’ve Got the Whole World in Our Hands. It was a magical day!
We would like to give a special thank you to the Texas Book Festival for inviting us to be a part of this wonderful program and the Easton Park HOA team for providing breakfast for our authors and students.
