Thank you for your visit to Lackner Woods Public School on Tuesday, April 15th. The grade 3 and 4 students were very fortunate to be able to chat with you about your experiences in becoming an author. They enjoyed listening to your book about Jazlyn J's Day of Danger, but they equally enjoyed hearing about the process that you use in developing your stories. It was particularly key that the graphic organizers that you shared as being the plans for your stories are almost precisely the same sorts of organizers being used by the students. What a great way to demonstrate a connection between what they do in the classroom to what happens in "real life" situations!
Renná, your energy and enthusiasm for your work was inspirational for the children. You are developing a book series that appeals to their interests and that shares valuable life lessons. I'm certain that you were "the favourite part of the day" for many of the children at home that evening.
Thank you for sharing your talents with us. I look forward to future titles in the series and wish you all the best in your endeavours as an author and children's advocate.
