Art Projects Inspired by Books

Standard

Just this past week, I was one of 25 authors who took part in the Humboldt County Author Festival in California. I had the most amazing school visits and would like to share some art and writing projects that the kids from South Fortuna Elementary and Eagle Prairie Elementary in Rio Dell did which might inspire you to do with your own children or students.
