Dear ALT Community,
I am thrilled to announce that the visiting author for this year was Melissa Sweet. Melissa is the author and illustrator of many wonderful books, and is the most award winning author we have ever hosted. She has won two Caldecott Honor Medals and two Sibert Medals! You can check out her books and the awards they have won by visiting her website: http://melissasweet.net Melissa visited ALT on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, and her visit was surely to a highlight in the year for ALT!
We are incredibly fortunate at ALT, for not only did the ALT PTO fund the author’s visit, but they also purchased one of the visiting author’s books for each child in the school! Melissa personally signed each book, so these will be tremendous keepsakes for your children. The following books were ordered for each grade level:
Kindergarten: Little Red Writing
1st Grade: Little Red Writing
2nd Grade: The Drawing Book
3rd Grade: The Drawing Book
4th Grade: The Drawing Book
5th Grade: The Right Word
A huge thank you to Melissa and to the incredible PTO for sponsoring such a fabulous day!
