by Diane Harold, Librarian – Forestdale School
On Friday December 12th, Kathleen Dayan, the author of the Cape Cod Bear book came to read and discuss her book with the K-2 students at Forestdale School.
The book tells the adventures of the black bear that visited the Cape a few years ago. The children made connections throughout the story to places they have visited on the Cape. It was a delight to see how engaged the students were with the author, as they thoroughly enjoyed her visit and the story. Many recognized the illustrations in the book as places they have previously visited.
We are excited to have the illustrator of the Cape Cod Bear book, Kate Walls, follow up our initial presentation with a visit on Feb. 24 to Forestdale to do an illustration workshop with all grades k-6.
