One Of Our FAVORITES, Ame Dyckman, Visits Miss McClintock's Kindergarteners Today!


Was today ever exciting!  

We had one of our FAVORITE children's authors visit our library with Miss McClintock's kindergarteners.

The wonderful and fun Ame Dyckman!  I have been a fan of Ame's and just love sharing her books with the little ones at Van Meter and in my house.  
Ame wrote one of our favorite picture books, Boy + Bot.  
It is such a sweet story of friendship with beautiful illustrations created by Dan Yaccarino.....another favorite of ours!
 The kindergarteners loved hearing Ame talk about Boy + Bot and her other books.
She shared her new favorite books for children....This was fun as we got new ideas for our library collection too.  A few of the kindergarteners then asked Ame questions....we learned so much.
Before our visit I showed the kindergarteners Ame's website, which has lots of great information about herself, the books she has written, and ones to come.

We also love Tea Party Rules! and can't wait to read Wolfie the Bunny and Horrible Bear, coming out very soon.
Over the holiday I received this package in the mail.

I knew right away who it was from....
And had so much fun sharing what was inside with them today!

Thank you Ame....You are just the best and we cannot wait until you come back to visit more of our students.
