My last school visit of 2006 was at Forts Ferry Elementary, and it was a great way to end the year. I spent two days with the kids talking about books, and I even tried out a brand new presentation on them. They were great sports.
The librarian at Forts Ferry is Mrs. Lynch, and she’ll be retiring soon. I had heard that she was was especially good at doing the voices when she read Backbeard to the students, so it was a real treat when she agreed to read it with me during the presentation.
A few weeks later, I received a terrific packet of thank-you notes from the fifth graders (see a few of the pictures below). Thanks to all the students at Forts Ferry, and especially Mrs. Condon and Mrs. Lynch, for making the visit so enjoyable!
