One of our third grade classes got lucky recently and had a Skype visit with author David A. Kelly. He has written quite a few books now. Many of us had read his non-fiction book Miracle Mud already and I had book talked his series Ballpark Mysteries with the students too. He showed us a container of the mud that is highlighted in his book. He also told us quite a bit about his writing process.
I am happy to have found a great mystery series to share with my students. It's a bonus that the whole series has a baseball theme. We had a great time talking with Mr. Kelly and are thankful he shared his time with us.
Mrs. Brunelle and fourth and fifth grade students manage this blog. We are crazy about books!
