Laurel's visit was FABULOUS - the kids loved her, Laurel enjoyed talking with my students and I think a good time was had by all. There was even a castle cake (made by my awesome partner in crime, Mrs. H - 4th grade teacher)
I think the kids loved that Laurel was a real, cool person. She answered their questions, laughed at their play and told them that she started writing when she was THEIR AGE - WOW. I think more than a few of the kids went home that night and started writing their own book.
Here are a few pictures from the day...
