Favourite Authors Share words of Wisdom!
Grade 3 students at Thorburn Consolidated School recently wrote letters to their favourite authors. The students were delighted to hear back from popular children’s writers Robert Munsch, Christine Butler, Eric Litwin, Daisy Meadows and Audrey Penn.
One of the most memorable letters came from Audrey Penn, who also sent autographed copies of her books The Kissing Hand and Chester the Brave to student, Julie. Penn’s letter shared some words of wisdom that inspired her to write The Kissing Hand: “All of my stories come from real life...I hope you keep a journal, Julie. You never know when something in there is the start of a perfect story.”
Great advice for these young authors!
