Bringing It All Together: Family Literacy Night and ARC HQ Tour Give Kids a Fun Look at Reading From Every Angle

Author Gee Johnson recently joined Dr. Stephen Peters and the students, parents, and staff at Global Leadership Academy in Philadelphia for their Family Literacy Night. A few days later, the students toured American Reading Company headquarters, where they got to visit with Gee again and watch how he creates books like What’s for Dinner? from pencil drawing to publishing. It’s always exciting to see students interact with the authors of books they love, and even better when they get to do it at school with their parents and teachers AND on an author’s “home turf.” We hope they enjoyed both visits, that their love for reading was fueled, and that some of them even decide to write books of their own one day!
