Fall 2016 Sand Dollar Summer book projects
Dioramas, Film strips, book covers, oh my!
In the fall of 2012, Mrs. Garringer's class did book projects on Sand Dollar Summer, and then in the Spring they read The Genie Scheme. WOW! I'm honored! In March, I visited their classroom to answer questions about both books and about writing in general. I also read from my ! new ! work-in-progress, The Golden Cage.
Below are some of the most wonderful, creative book projects I have seen. Mrs. Garringer asked her class to create a filmstrip, a snapshot, a book cover (front and back, complete with "blurbs"), or an A-B-C story. I can't tell you how much fun I had reading these, and I thought readers everywhere would like to see their work:
Clearly, the photos cannot do such work justice, but you get the idea!
Kim & Mrs. Garringer. What a class! What a teacher!

Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes and species...
Here's Baloo, our Newfoundland who was the inspiration for Babe in Sand Dollar Summer. He lived to be 14 years old! As his headstone says, he was The Best Beast in the East.
