Children's author Gary Bernard visits UrbanPromise students

gary1Gary Bernard, author and illustrator, spent an afternoon with CamdenForward School elementary students.  All grade classes listened as he read his first published book, Ollie and Tugg.

He told students how he takes his sketch book everywhere he goes to capture ideas for his sketches!
He spoke about his background as a child and how he came to be a writer and illustrator.  He also read, Pemba Sherpa, and presented a slide show of his drawings, which he designed for the book.  The students loved asking questions and the interaction they had with Gary Bernard.  Everyone enjoyed his presentation about his books!
