Children's book author Debbie Dadey visited Shamona Creek Elementary School for the school's "Author of the Month" program."During a school wide assembly, she read to students from her Bailey School Kids series, and later in the day, conducted an interactive writing workshop for the fourth graders," Jenn Wagner, a mother of a fourth-grader at Shamona Creek, said in a news release.
In an interview, Wagner said other Shamona Creek parents learned from Uwchlan Hills parents that Dadey moved to the area from Colorado. During Dadey's visit to Shamona Creek, she talked to students about brainstorming, refining thoughts, developing characters and using words to portray emotion, Wagner said.
"She answered a lot of questions the kids had," Wagner said. "I think the kids got a lot out of it."
The event was organized by Shamona Creek parents Marie Codd and Jean Marinan-Warner, according to Wagner.
