Skype Visit with Audrey Vernick

Today was another exciting day for the sixth graders at my school. Yesterday we had lots of pie, and today we Skyped with the mega-talented author, Audrey Vernick, who wrote my very favorite picture books: Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten? and Teach Your Buffalo to Play Drums.

Audrey was so amiable with the kids and has such a beautiful spirit about her. She answered a lot of great questions that the kids came up with - even I was impressed with some of the questions they asked. Given how engaging she was, I can definitely tell she has done school visits before, though I believe this was her first Skype visit. So thanks Audrey, the kids and I are so grateful for you spending time with us today!
