Rob Lloyd Jones, author of "Jake Atlas and the Emerald Atlas", the "Wild Boy" series and many "Look Inside" and "See Inside" books, visited SIS on Friday, October 20th. He met with all ES students and he was a big hit! With older students, he shared his personal story of how he overcame a dislike of reading when he was young to become a successful writer. With younger students, he shared his passion for non-fiction. With the youngest students, he read two of his fairy tale books. Four students for read his book as part of their after-school book club even got to have lunch with Mr. Lloyd Jones!
Students arrived as the library opened last Thursday morning to be first to check out the Morning Calm (MC) books. Within hours, all upper elementary MC books had been checked out! If you'd like to check one out, keep your eye on the rack. First come, first served. Good luck and happy reading!
