Author Visit, Felton Elementary, Lennox, CA, March 27th 2013

I had a wonderful time with the students and staff of Felton Elementary.  I was met by their librarian extraordinaire, Mrs. Fernandez who showed me the school’s amazing library.

I began my visit by reading to very well behaved Kindergarten students.  They filed in quietly and listened to my reading with enthusiasm.  Then I headed to their cafeteria where I read “I am Flippish!” to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders.  After my reading I proceeded with my lecture on ancestry and immigration.  The students were very engaging!  I was very impressed when I started talking about the Irish immigration to Mexico, one class knew about it.  We talked about the different ways to immigrate in 2013 and in 1620.  The children were shocked.  I also showed them what it was like to travel in the Mayflower and a modern day cruise ship.  All in all, the children got a glimpse of what some of their ancestors went through to come to this beautiful and blessed country called America.
