An Author Visit

Today the children at Chets Creek had the delightful experience of hearing children's author Carmen Agra Deedy, and what a treat it was!  Carmen was born in Cuba and came to the United States when she was three years old.  She told the children the story of leaving Cuba and her first year in school in the states.  She is such a wonderful story teller and so funny!  The children were captivated by her stories!  Make sure to ask your child about Carmen's story about the peanut man and baseball.
Children were offered the opportunity before the break to order a book by the author so those that ordered a book were given the opportunity to meet the author one-on-one and have their book signed.  Each year Chets Creek Media Specialist KK Cherney brings a children's author to the school so that the children can hear from someone who is a published author or illustrator.  What a treat!
