Do you remember when Patricia Polacco came to MDE?? The 2nd-5th graders got to go see her in the multipurpose room. Here is what we learned….. First, Patricia Polacco told us about some of her stories, and she said she doesn't have a favorite book, but she really likes the book Thank You Mr. Falker ! Patricia also told us she has been writing since she was about 40. Then she shared that when she was little she had trouble in school and couldn’t read well. Patricia also said that she got bullied in school, people called her stupid and laughed at her, so you should always believe in yourself. When Patricia Polacco visited, she surprised us with her wishing rock, which came from an actual meteor. The story of how she found it was the inspiration for her book…Meteor! Patricia Polacco has written so many amazing books that you should definitely read!
