Picture book author Kristi Yamaguchi came and talked to some of our younger classes and students from the Avenues Preschool about her newest book Cara’s Kindness. Combining her experiences as a gold medal Olympic figure skater with the talents of illustrator Tim Lee, Ms. Yamaguchi created an adorable cat character to explore friendship, kindness and generosity. Cara Cat is joined by Poppy Pig in her own picture books for K-2 graders– It’s a Big World, Little Pig and Dream Big, Little Pig illustrated by Tim Bowers.
On Wednesday, October 26th we had the honor of hosting some amazing visitors to our school!
The OC library has all 3 of these books available for check out.
Ms. Yamaguchi is also promoting her Always Dream Foundation which supports childhood literacy programs around the country.
Thanks to King’s English book store for making this visit possible, our counselor Dan for the great pictures and our reading buddies at The Avenues Preschool for joining us.
