Hello Wrinkles group!
Guess what! We have heard from Pat Street! She is the author who wrote the wonderful book, THERE'S A FROG IN MY THROAT. Remember how much fun we had the day we read and discussed the book. Here's her message:
Hi Mrs. Davis, and all the kids who made the ABC Blook on Blogging!
I think your work is the cat's pajamas! I love the way you used sayings and words starting with each letter of the alphabet. You used so many great idioms-- I collect idioms myself, so it was fun to see all of yours. I was glad to see that you even used some of the animal sayings that are in my book.
I was especially impressed with your artwork. Every picture is wonderful! It was hard to choose my favorites, but I especially liked the pictures for A, Q, S, and W.
I don't know very much about blogs, but now I'm going to try to learn about them. Maybe I'll try making one of my own!
My next book is going to be about "human body parts" sayings, like "green thumb" and "nosy" and "it's right on the tip of my tongue" and "I have butterflies in my stomach." If you think of any more like that, let me know.
It looks like you are having a terrific time writing. It makes me wish I were in your class!
Have fun, and keep being creative!
Isn't that a wonderful message! It was so nice of her to take the time to respond to us. What a nice feeling it is to have someone enjoy what you have written. I wish we were back in class so we could have a ball brainstorming a list of idioms for her new book. Be on the lookout for it to appear!
I hope you are enjoying your summer. I miss you bunches! Drop me an email if you get a minute to give me an update on what you are doing!
