*Our first read aloud of the year was Fish in a Tree.
*I read it last summer and absolutely loved the novel.
*It was a great novel to start the year off with my fourth grade students.
*When we finished the novel, Lynda was quite busy with promotion of this novel and working on other things. We weren't able to schedule a Skype visit.
*She contacted me last week and said she had some time on Thursday, November 13th to Skype with us.
*We were going to be the first class she was Skyping with about her new novel.
*I was thrilled as were my students. We quickly wrote questions/comments to share with her.
*The class spent about a half hour with Lynda and we had a great time.
*There is nothing quite like Skyping with an author.
*Thanks so much Lynda Mullaly Hunt for spending time with us about your upcoming novel.
*Here are some pictures from our Skype visit…
