Mrs. Sieplinga writes: "I just wanted to share an exciting little tidbit from my classroom. I posted on my blog about a book we had read in class called The Pout-Pout Fish, and the author of the book actually found the post and commented on it! The kids were so excited when I shared the author's message with them, and they all wanted to write back to her - so we did. It was neat to see!"
Here is the author's post: "I ran across this blog post and I just wanted to take a moment to say how delightful it was to read about this lightbulb moment! What a joy when kids dive so deeply into the books they're looking at. I hope they continue to enjoy The Pout-Pout Fish books, and all the other books that will be a part of their young lives.
A book a day keeps the pout-pouts away!"
Best Fishes to you and all your students,
Debbie Diesen (author of The Pout-Pout Fish)
