This week a local author, Marci Peschke, visited our kindergarten, first and second grade classes. Mrs. Peschke is the author of more than 20 books, such as the Kylie Jean series, Growing Up Daisy series, and several mysteries. The Kylie Jean books are about a lively Texas girl who has big dreams from being a beauty queen to a singer to a soccer star, and the series is popular with early chapter book readers in our library.
Students learned about the book making process from the initial story idea all the way to the printing and assembling of the pages. Mrs. Peschke shared with students how they can use their real lives to generate ideas for fiction writing. She also revealed the family member upon whom she based her Kylie Jean character. We even got to see a picture of the real Kylie Jean! Mrs. Peschke wore her pink cowboy hat just like Kylie Jean would wear, and she read a chapter from Kylie Jean Rodeo Queen.
After the visit, students were excited to check out her books from the school library and start reading!
