These boxes contain 222 hardcover copies of Ben Yokoyama and the Cookie of Doom.
They will be donated to the 2nd-5th graders of HH Garnet Elementary School this coming Friday when Robbi and I visit the school to talk about our books and how we work together to make them.
The books were funded by a generous donation from the Friends of the Kent County Public Library. Many thanks thanks to Judi OBrien, Cynthia Saunders, and others for creating this opportunity for kids in our community to connect with books and the related benefits.
The pre K-1st graders will be getting a copy of either Everywhere, Wonder or Babies Ruin Everything, made possible by Garnet’s Title I funding.
We can’t wait to spend the day at Garnet. As much as we love making our books, they’re mostly just a good excuse to go into schools and connect with students and teachers.
The magic happens when books get read, sparking excitement and creating momentum for writing and drawing and storytelling.
