Our class was very fortunate to get to see author, Peter Brown at the Hong Kong International Young Readers Festival, hosted by the Canadian International School. He read from his book, "Children Make Terrible Pets," demonstrated his illustration style and well as walked the students through his creative process. The students were able to ask Mr. Brown questions and were very entertained by his sense of humor.
Our Admissions Coordinator and huge fan of 1LJY, Sara Baur, came in with a VERY special friend, her dog Murray to read to the students. The students did a great job of listening to the story, "Dogs!" while Murray ran around and sniffed the room. They were then treated to some of Murray's best tricks, including hand shaking, turning around and his favorite, playing fetch. We weren't sure who had more fun, Murray or the students? (FYI: Murray is world famous on Corgi fansite, The Daily Corgi: http://thedailycorgi.blogspot.com/)
