School Visit Photo Album, Ohio

Recently, I've been blessed with a run of amazing school visits.
The latest schools were in Lima and Finlay, OH. Both schools did incredible jobs preparing the students. Even though I was a bit fatigued, the energy of the students carried me through. First they welcomed me with Lissy and some origami friends (from Lissy's Friends):
Some students compared Ling and Ting to themselves:

And one grade picked their favorite Seasons:

(summer seemed to be the big winner in the popularity contest)

Fourth graders illustrated scenes from The Year of the Dog:

And, inspired by Thanking the Moon, one class wrote their secret wishes:

I love this one, I wanted to be a unicorn too when I was a kid!

This display had me a little confused. I didn't remember doing a book about fans.

But then I read the sign:
Ha ha!

Those displays are amazing! What great projects too. The staff at those schools really got their students prepped for and excited about your visit. I know how much time and effort that must have taken--but I bet students and teachers alike enjoyed themselves.

Wow! I love the Ling, Ting and Me portraits. Teachers really "get it," don't they? Their resourcefulness and creativity knows no bounds.

I love how all of the visited schools put together so many great displays relating to your books.

Very cool, Grace. What wonders a good book can do. Love your dress, too, btw.

Yes, aren't these displays great? I've been so lucky lately with these wonderful schools I've been visiting!
