For Read Across America Day on March 2, I had a video-conference with this lovely first grade class in Lorena, Texas. I read them Salad Pie and answered questions. They were well prepared, and had written down their questions ahead of time. I showed them snow, since we had plenty of snow in Michigan in March, and made a little snowball for them. Too bad they couldn't reach through the screen and touch it--some of them hadn't experienced snow before. They sent me this beautiful photo.
