Every year the VEPVPA chooses a book to donate to every elementary school library in Vancouver. I’m thrilled that Norman, Speak! was this year’s choice. I was lucky, too, have the chance to present the book to principals and vice principals and a select group of young readers. Here is some of the artwork created for the event by Miyuki, a grade five student at Shaughnessy Elementary School. Thank you VEPVPA! Thank you Miyuki!
Thanks to Kids Can Press for sending pictures of the fun these readers had at the Jasper John Dooley photobooth!
