River Read - Park University

On March 13, I had a great time chatting with fourth and fifth graders from the Park Hill School District at Park University's River Read Festival!

We used BREAD BEFORE THE STORE and BLUE JEANS BEFORE THE STORE to discuss the writing process and elements of nonfiction, including text features to look for in nonfiction books.

The kids and their adults asked great questions and even gave me suggestions for future writing projects.

Thanks for the opportunity, Park University!
