Square Cat by Elizabeth Schoonmaker

When we made our video about our classroom and shared it with the world an author named Elizabeth Schoonmaker was impressed with it and wanted to send us a copy of her book.  Ms. Lirenman got in touch with her and today we received a surprise package in the mail. It was addressed to our class and inside there were TWO copies of her book Square Cat and some special Square Cat fan cards.  What a wonderful surprise.

When we opened the book and started to read it we were shocked (in a good way) to see this writing inside one of the books.

We've never had an author sign a book especially for us! How exciting.  The second book was signed to our school and we are going to make sure it goes into our school library so all the children can read it.

Thank you so much Elizabeth Schoonmaker for thinking of us and sending us this great new book.  We will do something for you we promise, and hopefully it will be before we leave for school holidays on Friday, but just in case it isn't we want you to know that we are very thankful for this new book.

We really like Eula and we loved what her friends did for her.  The book made us smile.

Thank you!
