The Herricks Public Schools’ Denton Avenue School students enjoyed an inspiring visit from author and illustrator Barbara McClintock during Pick a Reading Partner week. She spoke to the various grade levels during three separate presentations, and several students had the opportunity to join her for lunch.
Students wrote persuasive letters to Ms. McClintock and created illustrations from their favorite books. Two students from each grade level were selected based on these works to spend even more time with the author during a lunch gathering. They learned about her role as a writer and illustrator, her life and the creative writing process.
