Jay is arriving on Thursday for a weekend of chamber music with friends and then our first presentations at a school.  On the 28th and 29th we will be working with six 4th grade classes at a local elementary.   We will do a short reading from Norm and Burny and then spend most of the time working with the kids on their own writing projects.  This is something we’d like to do in other schools so that we can pass along the techniques we have developed for writing together.   Kids seem to think once they’ve written something down, they’re through.  We want to teach them the value and the fun of editing as a team.

    This is so great that you’re doing this.



  2. Mindy, we can’t wait to show the kids your drawings! We’re expecting our first shipment of proof books today here and Jay is getting a shipment at his house tomorrow. We won’t have one to leave with the kids yet, but we’ll take it to show them. If I saw this book in a store, I would buy it for the drawings alone. You can’t imagine how delighted we all are with what you’re doing. Book 2 coming up!! Peggy
