Kindergarten Author-Illustrator Visit Ruth Chan

Dear Kindergartners and Parents,
wherestheparty
We are excited to bring acclaimed author-illustrator Ruth Chan to our library on  Tuesday, December 13th to speak to our Kindergarten classes.

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 Ruth’s books before the visit.

Before the visit
We have purchased some copies of Ruth’s book for the classrooms so students can become familiar with her work before the visit. There are also additional copies in the library that students may check out.

To make the most out of Ruth’s visit:mervinthesloth
• Consider checking out Ruth’s books from the school or public library.
• Talk up the visit before the actual date. The more excited the kids are about it, the more they’ll get out of it.

For more information, visit Ruth’s website at ohtruth.com  If you have any questions or suggestions for this author visit, please contact our school Librarian, Mr Marcus, at adam.marcus@ps32.org

We’re looking forward to a great visit!

ruthchanportraitAbout the author
Before Ruth began illustrating full-time, she spent much of her Canadian childhood tobogganing, another chunk of time studying art and education at Wellesley College and the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and a decade working with kids in schools, after school and summer pro-grams in underserved communities in Boston, DC, and NYC. She has since become a full-time illustrator, spending her time creating children’s picture books, freelance illustrating, and doodling on the train. Ruth now lives in Brooklyn, NY with her cat, Georgie, and her dog, Feta, who share their imaginary adventures in her debut picture book, Where’s the Party? and their real life adventures at georgietales.com.
