Today I had the honor of meeting some wonderful teachers, parents and other authors at the Casa Esperanza Montessori Charter School in Raleigh, NC. After spending some time with the other authors and parents, who volunteered to take us around to the different classrooms, I was escorted to three different classrooms to read by book "Flying Together, It's OK, Really". The classes were combined grades of K/1 graders, 2/3 graders and 4/5 graders. After my reading in each class, the children asked all kinds of questions. In the lower grades the children understood that, just like the birds, it makes no difference what color we are, we are all the same. After I finished reading to the the 4/5 graders, there questions were more like, "How hard is it to write a book?", and "Did you do your own illustrations and who do you get to publish your books?" It was very obvious each class throughly enjoyed my book. It seems this is going to be the start of more school readings of which I am looking forward to.
