FUN MAIL: Kindergartners Read and Respond to DIVA DELORES AND THE OPERA HOUSE MOUSE

IMG_6375What a delightful surprise to have this bright pink yarn-bound book arrive via special delivery right to my doorstep (Thank you, Mrs. Timberlake!) from the cute, hardworking kindergartners in Mrs. DeVestern’s classes at the Ben Franklin School in Edison, New Jersey.

It seems they’ve been learning all about authors, illustrators, picture books, and the magic of putting words and illustrations together.  And do my delight, after reading DIVA DELORES AND THE OPERA HOUSE MOUSE, they decided to write and illustrate their favorite parts of the story. The teacher gathered their responses in a book and had them delivered to me!

Thank you, Mrs. DeVestern and thank you, kindergartners!  You did a wonderful job picking the most important and best parts of the story. I shall treasure each and every one of your responses.  And now, I’d like to share just a sampling.  The last picture is, of course, my thank you note back to them!  Aren’t their illustrations and sentences wonderful?

Happy reading, all!

    • I just made that specially for the occasion of responding to them so the reply would look more “official”, but I kind of like it. Maybe I’ll play around with it some more and print out some actual stationary to have on hand for writing thank you notes after visits etc.
