Mr. Hanley’s First Class had a wonderful surprise today when they got to meet the author of the storybook ‘Fidget the Wonder Dog’ Patricia Forde. As Covid restrictions are still in place this was done via Zoom as part of the Baboró Festival for Children.
Patricia read the story for the class and then gave the children an opportunity to ask her questions about the book and the writing process. The class then got a lesson from the illustrator in how she drew some of the characters in the story, in particular Fidget himself. The class had a great experience and came up with some wonderful questions about the book.
