Patricia Polacco at CCIRA
Last Friday at CCIRA in Denver 700 of us had lunch with Patricia Polacco, a wonderful children's author. She read The Keeping Quilt to us and brought along the original, tattered and torn quilt from the story. She had us laughing and crying during her presentation. Today it was important to me to share with my students about my experiences last Thursday and Friday so I read another one of her stories.
I hope that if you are a parent, you will continue to read aloud to your children. The 5th graders listened just as raptly as the younger kids.
