On this Thanksgiving Eve, I'd like to give a shout out to my new friends in Rochester, New York. Northwood, Village, and Quest Elementary Schools hosted my visit earlier this month and I had a terrific time!

BIG thanks to Julie Rapp who organized my visit from start to finish.

Assistant Principal Karen Bolinger read THE SANDWICH SWAP to every single class at Northwood Elementary while dressed as a peanut butter & jelly sandwich! I want to bring her on the road with me as my mascot!

These two lovely young ladies wrote their own lyrics to a beautiful song about friendship and they sang it to me! Thank you, girls! You are so talented.

An amazing gallery of "Sandwich Friends".

Me and more Sandwich Friends.

These little helpers did a fantastic job sharing what they remembered about the beginning, middle, & end of the story in my HUNGRY FOR BOOKS program.

And a great, BIG, GIANT thank you goes out to Brooke who made this enormous, custom sandwich for me for my school visit programs. Check out Brooke's Etsy store, Royal Rugrats, to see all of her adorable felt play food sets.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers!
