Lincoln Elementary School Visit

In February I visited Lincoln Elementary School in Wheaton, IL, as a storyteller for their family reading night. I had two sessions of about 90 people each. My theme was "reading as an illustrator" (paying careful attention to the story's images in order to illustrate it). I read a Chinese folk story, we discussed it, then I created an illustration from the story. The kids (and parents) did a great job identifying the key visuals from the stories.

Thanks to Karen Ringas for inviting me, and thanks to Debbie Bucher for taking these photos.
