On Monday, March 4th, 2013 author James Howe visited the Stratford Road Library to kick off PARP week. Students and staff had a great time listening to Mr. Howe's presentations. During his visit he spoke with students about how a book is made from brainstorming to the finished product. He also shared how he journals his writing ideas and told the students the backgrounds behind many of their favorite books and characters. Some of the 3rd and 4th grade students were able to eat lunch with Mr. Howe and share their own writing ideas with him.
It was a very rewarding and entertaining visit, thank you Mr. James Howe and the Stratford Road PTA for a great day!
