Surprise Author Visit

Second graders in Kate Schrader's class at McKinley School were given the opportunity to read the first chapter book in a series called Sunshine Elementary before it was released to the public.  
 
"I was able to get an advanced copy from the author, Nina Saporta, and my students LOVED the book," says Schrader, whose children attend school with Saporta's children.
 
Saporta paid a surprise visit to Schrader's class in May, encouraging students to share examples of kindness and problem-solving while discussing the situations the characters in her Sunshine Elementary series navigate at their fictional school.
