Mrs C, our PAES Librarian, works closely with Barnes & Noble for our book fairs and school and classroom libraries. Recently, a representative from Barnes and Noble called Mrs. C to see if we would be interested in having a children’s author come and speak to our kids and read one of her new books to them.
Of course Mrs. C. was very excited and coordinated the visit of Annie Barrows to PAES!! Annie Barrows is a New York Times best-selling author best known for her Ivy + Bean series of children’s books. Barrows introduced and read from her new book, The Best of Iggy, to 2nd-5th graders last Thursday in our school library. It was such a neat experience for our students to meet a real author and to hear her read her own work and explain how she came up with ideas for it. She also left signed copies of her new book for sale here in the office.
Thank you to Mrs. C. and the Clackamas Barnes & Noble for such a special treat!!
