One Terrific School Visit

The 5th grade students in Mrs. Downer's class at La Crescenta's Fremont Elementary were a delight to visit.  Each student gave their own interpretation of THE AVIARY's silhouette cover illustration (see above) and came prepared with a thoughtful question.  I had a wonderful time and hope they all did too!
