Pretty In Pink!

Spring is in full bloom in our Nation's Capital!

These famous Cherry Blossoms inspired our classroom learning today!

On Saturday, I had the pleasure to meet the author of this fabulous children's book, Cherry Blossom Friends!  The author, Corkey Hay DeSimone, engages readers of all ages through the use of riddles and fascinating facts included in her book.

This book teaches the history of the cherry trees gifted from Japan.  It also uses the fun riddles to inform students about the animals that live in the area and among the famous cherry trees.  The book shares history of the monuments and other historical landmarks in and around the National Mall.  

Her beautiful words and eye catching illustrations inspired my young authors and illustrators today!

Take a look at some of our projects!

Thank you to Mrs. DeSimone for sharing your talents and your books with many young children!
