Please note, this talk is during school hours and is for the students only but we want to let parents know so they can help their kids get familiar with Abby’s books before the visit.

Before the visit
We have purchased some copies of  Ralph Tells a Story  and Dory Fantasmagory for the first grade classrooms so students can become familiar with Abby’s work before the visit. There are also additional copies in the library that students may check out.

To make the most out of Abby’s visit:
• Consider checking out Abby’s books from the school or public library.
• Talk up the visit before the actual date. The more  2015APR24_AbbyHanlon_2
