Two weeks ago I visited Buena Vista elementary in San Francisco to talk to students about the importance of reading. We read Armadilly Chili to the kids - as that is the book that the state of California picked as their Read Across America book for 2010-2011. I felt so honored to be part of their state wide celebration.
Here I am with David Sanchez (president of the CTA) and Dennis Kelly (president of the United Educators of San Francisco).
The kids were great! Kids are the same no matter where you go and it's always fun to share my art with them and listen in as they whisper to eachother. (psss - that artist must really like food) :)
Check out the video they shot during our visit:
