The 3rd grade BookMunch group read Little Dog, Lost in December and on Thursday, December 12, at lunch, the group spoke with the author, Marion Dane Bauer, by Skype. The students asked many questions about her writing process and how she decided on the character names and places in the story. Mrs. Bauer graciously answered each question and then surprised the students by bringing out her two dogs to meet the students, both of which she had rescued. Student's learned why the book is written in short prose and that the style is easier for student's to read but also more difficult to write! Here are some photographs from the event:
My Reading List!
I am the Library Media Center director at Patton School in Arlington Heights where I help students from kindergarten through 5th grade find terrific independent reading for enjoyment and information, and teach students the skills to use information and technology safely and productively and to connect, communicate and share with others. I have four grown children, a large black dog, (flat coat retriever) and a small striped cat. I am an obessive Chicago Cubs fan and I love to run.
