“Snow” Pretty!

Flint got me a present! Isn’t it pretty?

I’m very excited to be visiting with old friends and new on my second visit to Flint, Michigan. I’ll be here for three whole days! I’m talking to third graders (and giving away some books), but I’m also planning to chat with some 5th and 6th grades and—if I’m lucky—some first graders too!

I’m also hoping that I can persuade some students to start writing their own story—either as an autobiography or a memoir. Or, if they want to do it like I do, hidden in other stories. I can’t wait to tell them about how I’ve been finding and telling my story through my lighthouse books and how I’ve put a bit of my own story in each one. (Does that silly doggie in The Secret of Bete Grise Bay remind you of anyone?)

The only bad thing about my visits is that I had to leave Mercy at home. But she doesn’t seem to be too upset. (I’m not even sure she knows I’m away!)
