Yesterday we had a real "treat"....author Jim Aylesworth came to visit our school. We have read many of his books here at school. One of our favorites was his retelling of The Gingerbread Man. In it he wrote a new song for the Gingerbread Man. Be sure to listen to it in our video. Another favorite is The Old Black Fly. He shared with us how he was inspired to write a book about a big nasty fly! You can visit his web site for more details about Jim and all of his books. We didn't know he used to teach first grade! Wow! He even shared with us his next two books that haven't even come out yet. We can't wait to read them in class. It was so wonderful to meet Jim and have him share his books and thoughts with us. He is very funny and you can see by the children's faces how fascinated they were by him.
