Second Grade

On Tuesday, November 8th, the second graders enjoyed a visit from author and illustrator, Christie Jones Ray. Mrs. Ray described the making of her books, her ideas, her handwritten words, and her watercolor illustrations. She introduced the students to her main character, Eliza, a small whimsical mouse who goes on many adventures around the world. Mrs. Ray’s imagination and beautiful use of sensory details in her stories are inspiring to young writers.
