There was a lot to like about my visit last week to Elsmere Elementary, in the Bethlehem, NY school district. The setting in the library was just perfect, and Robyn Ryan and Nacy Smith did such a great job getting everything ready for the visit. My lasting memory, however, will probably be the terrific interpretations of hairy pirates that lined the hallway that the kids made, some of the best pictures I’ve seen at a school visit. There were far too many to show them all here, but I’m posting just a few to give you a taste of the variety, humor, and life that each picture seemed to have. These would make a great book on their own.
