We had a fabulous virtual author visit with Sandra Horning! I was
introduced to The Giant Hug years ago and have been reading it to my
kindergarteners as an introduction to our mail unit. Sandra shared so
many details about how she came up with the idea, who the characters
were named for and how long the book took to write. The kindergarten
friends loved her share! And as a bonus, she emailed me a hug
certificate that I could print out for each friend. Since we were doing
our mail unit, we took the opportunity to mail it to a family member to
extend our learning! A HUGE thank you to Sandra Horning for a fabulous
virtual visit! I would highly recommend this to other teachers!
