A Love-ly Author/Illustrator Visit

Dear Families,

Last Friday, January 12, we were thrilled to host author Matt de la Peña and illustrator Loren Long! The two recently collaborated on their brand new picture book, Love.


During their presentation to students, Matt and Loren spoke about their diverse experiences growing up. They also shared about the collaborative process, noting that authors and illustrators do not generally get to work together! Matt and Loren were an exception to this rule, bouncing ideas off of one another and making changes to both the words and pictures in the story to convey the message better.


After their talk (and a bit during, too), Matt and Loren took questions and comments from students, emphasizing that this was their favorite part of school visits. Check out the video below to hear what some of our students had to say about Love!


Thanks very much to Flyleaf Books for bringing this dynamic author/illustrator duo to our school! If you would like to order a signed copy of Love, please contact Amanda Ibarra at Flyleaf Books:
