This week, someone noticed that Tomie’s Blog Blogger blogged about me last Tuesday and kindly let me know! Who is Tomie, you ask? Why, Tomie dePaola, of course! You can read what I wrote about him in this Book Nook. One of the reasons I love and follow Tomie’s blog is because he writes about conversations he has with children while visiting schools around the country. He also posts pictures that children have drawn for him. His blog reminds me of what it is like to be in the classroom; classrooms are wonderful places, full of energy and laughter. (Except during a spelling test, of course!)
Tomie’s blog also shows pictures of Tomie painting a gnu for a fundraiser in New London, New Hampshire.
Find more about Tomie dePaola at his website, tomie.com. And if you haven’t read any of his books yet, go find one and read!
