Jonathan has presented to tens of thousands of students around the US and we had a great time with him today!
The author explained to the students in his presentation, “Reading is not something you do, it is somewhere you visit,” comparing book covers to doors into another place with infinite adventures. He encouraged students to think of their pencil as a “magic wand” they can create magical words with.
Third grade student, Ema Asanuma, sang a song for Mr. Rand following the assembly that she wrote about North Elementary School! Mr. Rand was impressed with her writing skills and encouraged her to keep up with her writing.
Students had the opportunity to purchase autographed copies of the author’s Michigan Chillers and American Chillers book series leading up to the event.
