Mar 25

As I pulled into the parking lot this morning, I read a personalized welcome message on the school sign. And that, my friends, was just the beginning of how well I would be welcomed at Hightower Elementary—home of the Tigers! 

There was a LEGO welcome sign in the library in honor of my LEGO City books. And there was even my very own word search—an author visit first for me!

Of course, the day got even better when I met all the Hightower Tigers! In between presentations, I chatted with some of the Tigers and signed a bunch of books. It was wonderful to get to know so many young readers AND writers. Keep doing both!

Thanks to Mrs. Adcock and the Hightower PTA for having me out and for the tasty lunch. Thanks to Mr. Froman for the tech support. A big thanks to all the Hightower Tigers for being such an energized yet polite audience with so many great questions! And another big thanks to Ms. Carr for setting everything up and the fun lunch conversation about our various travels. One of my favorite quotes is one from Saint Augustine: “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
