Hamilton was treated to a special guest on Tuesday, March 1st. To kick off our March is Reading Month festivities, we got to meet a famous, local author - Bryan Chick! Bryan came to talk to 3rd-5th grade students about growing up in Michigan, how he became an author, and how he was inspired by the Detroit Zoo as a child. This inspiration lead to him writing The Secret Zoo series, which currently has 5 published titles (the 6th will be out in just a few weeks!). He gave away copies of his first book, The Secret Zoo, to four lucky audience members who could correctly answer his big questions. What were the big questions? You'll have to attend one of his presentations to find out. He's visiting schools in Michigan all month long.
Would you like to read the Secret Zoo series? Good news: Mrs. Henderson can request them from our library and other TSD libraries so you can read one right away! Wishing you were one of the students who got a signed copy of the book? More good news: Mr. Chick has order forms you can fill out to purchase copies of the first 5 books in the series. He will sign them and bring them back to our school. Please return the book orders and money by Wednesday, March 8th, to get a signed copy!
