Salem Elementary-Russell County, KY

I am a little late in posting this, because I had ear surgery and cannot seem to get back on track, but I had to write about a wonderful group of students.

 A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting 2nd - 4th grades at Salem Elementary in Kentucky. The children were delightful and made my feel very welcome. I was amazed at some of the questions that came from the 3rd graders. The teachers are doing an awesome job!  A couple of the questions were: "What is the theme of the story?" and "What is the plot?" Wow!  OK guys, I couldn't let you get off that easy, so I did not give those answers. I hope you discussed it in class and figured it out. There were a lot of other questions about my personal life, how I wrote the book, future books, etc.  

Thank you to everyone at Salem Elementary especially the custodian who helped get the lights ready, the computer guy that got the flash drive to work, Ms Shalonda for organizing the event, and 3rd grade student, Dawson.

Dawson made me smile when he said he was going to take my book on vacation with him and when he found out the book included an audio download, he said he would put it on his iPod. Just before I left, he told me to let him know when I have another book because he wants to buy one!  From the mouths of babes! Oh, how sweet those words!

                                       Thank you, Salem Elementary. You are a special group.
