I visited Rossman School yesterday and read my new picture book app, Police Hens to the Senior Kindergarten and First Grade. They had a great smart board, so that all the children could see my book app. The Senior Kindergarten is starting to learn about community helpers, so this was a fun way to introduce the police. They really seemed to enjoy finding the clues in the story and guessing what kind of jobs the hens will have next.
I wore a police hens T-shirt with this design on it —->
My kids went to Rossman School and it was fun to go back and see all the great things that they have been doing there.
I hope to get some pictures of the event to share. I read to 55 students! and they were great!
I talked a little about the process of writing, and rewriting, illustrating and re-illustrating.
I left them with a coloring page from the book. Coloring pages can be found here: Things to Do
