Wow! What a busy week in the Town School Library! We started the week with a birthday celebration for Ms. Alonso (Thank you to all the boys who signed my Birthday Apron!) and then were lucky enough to host author and illustrator Divya Srinivasan for presentations to 1st and 2nd graders in the Tiger Room.

After sharing with the boys artwork she had made when she was their age and talking about her writing, drawing, and revising process, she did an art demonstration that everyone really enjoyed. She started by digitally drawing a smiling turtle on her tablet:

After taking recommendations for embellishment from her audience, she had drawn a bearded, shod, backpack-and-top-hat-wearing skateboarder in the grass by a pond:

One student couldn't help but murmur, "Woah, she's really good."  Thank you, Divya!!

Ms. Srinivasan's books can be found in the Town School Library. Thanks to Books, Inc. for facilitating our book sale!

P.S.  Here's a glimpse of that Birthday Apron. 
Thank you for all the kind birthday wishes!
