In May, Valley View Elementary School held its annual Author/Illustrator’s Day. Author Tao Nyeu met with students in grades TK to second; author Tim Egan met with students in grades three and four; author Jeri Chase-Ferris met with students in grades five and six.

The program is made possible through the Assistance League of Glendale with the goals to stimulate literacy and creativity and promote learning about the writing process. The authors and illustrators made four presentations in each classroom they visited. At the end of the day, a book sale was held so students could purchase the books at a reduced price and have the books signed by the author/illustrator.

The Assistance League donated $1,000 to help Valley View purchase library books. In addition, the school was given copies of any books by the authors and illustrators visiting that day that were not already in their library.
