|Aurelia Pennekamp Elementary School Library||
There are a couple of great author events coming up!
Seth Fishman visited Pennekamp a while back to share with us his first book: One Hundred Billion Trillion Stars. His new book--Power Up: Your Incredible, Spectacular, Supercharged Body--is sure to be terrific. Seth is a dynamic speaker who makes nonfiction content fun for children of all ages.
Chris Van Dusen is the author-illustrator of many books for young readers, including The Circus Ship and Hattie & Hudson. He is the illustrator of the Mercy Watson and Deckawoo Drive series. His new picture book with Kate DiCamillo is A Piglet Named Mercy.
Barbara Siegemund-Broka, library media specialist, maintains this blog to inform Pennekamp students and families about library news and related content. Any opinions expressed here are solely her own.
