My first Blog

Wow!Who would believe it! I hope everyone had a great holiday! I visited some wonderful schools last week!
Waynesboro Primary on Monday in Waynesboro, Georgia. What a great mascot, a Panda Bear.It was a great day working with all the 2nd graders and the teachers, too. Miss Barbara was a trooper and helped keep it all flowing and even laughed at all my puns.The principal, Mr. Mitchell, kept stopping by and laughing . He must have enjoyed it because he invited me to a wonderful lunch in the cafeteria.

Pinecrest Elementary on Tuesday in Greenwood, South Carolina. The theme for this year is " Under Construction". They mean it, everyone had hard hats and at the end of the day the principal was using a backhoe. The students created time capsules to be buried. Cool, huh? The school had met their reading goals and this was their big day! The media specialist, Mrs. Ellenberg, was great!

Michael just spent two wonderful days with the students at Timber Ridge Elementary in Marietta, GA. With paper and pencil in hand, the students were truly engaged, listening and observing as Michael shared his creativity and enthusiasm. As he drew, they drew. As he tossed out puns and spontaneous ideas, students responded with their own ideas. The dynamics were terrific. The encouragement to follow your dreams and to work hard, learning as much as you can along the way is a message that registered with all of our students. What a great treat Michael White's visit was for our school community. He was Sponsored by our PTA through the Great Artists program.
Kathie, a Library Dragon.

Dear Michael P. White,

I can't wait to meet you at Walker Elem. on January 15, 2009. I have a question for you. Are you going to help us draw a picture so that we can write a story about it? I want to buy the book The Library Dragon. I like the story and the illustrations. I think you are a great artist. I would like to be an artist someday.

Walker Elem.,
