May 16


I had a great day at Mission West Elementary in Houston, Texas—home of the Wildcats! After my first presentation with the huge group of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders, I stopped by to visit with some of the morning pre-K kiddos. They had some great questions and many fine stories of their own.
Then it was lunch with all the library helpers: Alan, Andrea, Carlos, Ediel, Ephraim, Gisselle, Jasmin, Jermial, Kenneth, Melissa, and Whitney. I had a great time eating pizza with them and I’d like to thank Tyler for providing the cookies for desert. It was big fun hanging out with such great helpers AND readers!
I enjoyed a smaller presentation with some more 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders and then back in the cafeteria for another big show where I was presented with a very cool Wildcats T-shirt. Thanks, Mission West!
Thanks to Anne Arnold for inviting me (and for the tasty pizza). Thanks to Lisa Arnold and Mr. Calane for all the help setting up. And a big thanks to all the Mission West Wildcats for being such a great audience all around. I’d also like to thank Mrs. Petticrew’s class for taking the time to make me such wonderful thank you cards. It turns out that Mrs. Petticrew’s class has the same motto: “I Can Do That.” Don’t ever forget those four powerful words!
