Storytime: Tomie dePaola

This week we focused on the author/illustrator Tomie de Paola. Except for our flannel story, all stories were written by him, and our craft at the end was to draw him a picture or write him a letter.  I then bundled up the letters and mailed them to him. It will be interesting to see if we get a response.
