A Magnificent Monday with Raina Telgemeier

Raina Telgemeier Day was a HUGE success! Raina captivated the audience with her interesting and dynamic presentation. She made child after child SMILE during the book signing. I will ask my students to reflect on the experience throughout the week. I'll add their comments to the end of this blog post. For now, I hope you enjoy looking at photographs and vine videos from the event. 

Cupcakes + 2 cakes = an incredible creation

The dessert table is always a big hit with my students. 

This is what Raina saw as she entered the building. 

Raina drew during the Q&A. 

The signing is always my favorite part.

Author-illustrator Dave Roman surprised Raina by showing up in Naperville last night. He ALSO visited my school today. My favorite moment was when a fifth grader spotted Dave and said, "Hey! That's Dave Roman." His green hair was a big hit, too. :) 

Thank you, Dave!
