Lester's in the house!

Today the children at Chet's Creek had the thrill of being entertained by famous children's author Lester Laminack. Lester has written over 30 books for children and for teachers and he is a storyteller extraordinaire. Not only did the children listen to him tell stories, but later he came into our Writers' Workshop and had individual conferences with some of our kiddos. How exciting is that!

Although Lester said he not visited this student's homeland of Australia, he did say that Australian author, Mem Fox, was a friend!
Get ready Mom.  Lester helped this student firm up his arguments for getting a puppy that he already thinks his dad and brother want!  Oh my!
What a special day!
