Patricia Polacco Visits Churchill!

On May 20th, 2011, Patricia Polacco pulled up her rocking chair and shared some of her wonderful stories with our students. From her first picture book (Meteor!, written in 1987) through some of her more recent ones, Patricia has been weaving stories that reflect her own childhood memories, including her struggles with learning disabilities.  Growing up in Michigan, she was surrounded by grandparents and other relatives who were wonderful storytellers.  “I think that our family was unusual because they relied on oral tradition.”

It was an amazing day for our students who were mesmerized by her gift of the art of the storytelling.
