Kenneth Kraegel at Wheatley Education Campus
When AOB staff arrived at Wheatley Education Campus, Kenneth Kraegel was already reading Green Pants to an attentive Pre-K class. The students related to the book’s main character Jameson whose green pants make him feel brave, and they shared the things they own that make them feel brave. Kenneth gave three presentations during which he showed students how he makes his books and they spontaneously shared their creations with him. The children were excited to learn that they use many of the same materials to write and illustrate their books as the talented picture book author and illustrator.
