Josh Funk & His Virtual Visit To Our Students In Iowa!

Last week, we had the honor of having one of our favorite authors, 
Josh Funk, visit the Van Meter kindergarteners and... sister Heather's students in Amana, Iowa.  
Josh was amazing as he talked about writing and how he became an author.
He even answered questions from our kindergarteners and Heather's kids in Amana.  This is always one of our favorite parts!  
And one of my favorite parts was when Josh read Lost in the Library, which is one of our favorite new library books. 

It was an amazing Skype!  Everyone loved it so much. 
Now, I just have to show you Josh's website!  

It is amazing! You will find it here too.  
On his site, there is a page just for kids filled with....
 Character Cards, 
Book Trailers, 
Play Book Songs, 
 Activity Kits and Coloring Pages, 
 Activity Kits filled with... much fun for our....
 ...learners, readers,
classroom teachers and librarians.
We especially love the Lost in the Library Activity Kit since this is the one Josh read to us during his Skype visit.
One last thing....You must check out Josh's Resources for Writers where he has developed 12 lessons for writing picture books.  These are all so awesome and will be super helpful and meaningful to our young writers. 

Thank you Josh for visiting our libraries and inspiring our students and teachers.  YOU are amazing, my friend!  We can't wait until you visit again!
