As we got his new book An Otis Christmas in the library, our students asked me over and over if we could Skype with Loren again.
We first joined Loren and a few other schools in a Google Hangout for Read for the Record this fall. You can read about it at Otis and Loren Long Visits Van Meter To Celebrate "Read for the Record" With All Of Us. It was great fun.
After he read, it was time for them to ask Loren questions. They always have the best ones to share.
They told Loren all about how Otis is a "bucket filler".
When asked what his favorite book that he wrote was Loren told us the story about The Little Engine That Could.
