Emily Jenkins at West Education Campus

Emily Jenkins led the West Education Campus kindergarteners through a breathtaking romp of a read-aloud with her new picture book A Greyhound, A Groundhog!  Introducing the concept of “creative flow” to the young students, Emily used several of her older picture books to point out how writers and illustrators can emphasize their priorities, and how, after careful noticing, creators can choose the observations to which they want to draw a reader’s attention.  Emily held these students’ attention rapt as each group lined up to receive their personalized copy of the adorable book.
