A Pigeon Tale Visits Our School!


I first realize that something magical is going to happen when
I receive this package in the mail.


The author reads the story accompanied with music by the illustrator.

It is a packed library, but the children are mesmerized.

The illustrator paints moments from the book.

Lucky children!

The author shares music with a student.

What a great day! Thank you, author Dana Knox Wright and illustrator Harriet Myrick!


P.S. A little serendipity:
The author and illustrator told us that one of their pigeons had, sadly, died.
One of our teachers raises pigeons,
and was able to procure a baby that day for A Pigeon Tale!

  23. What a great idea! This author's enthusiasm should surely instill a love of reading in those children. I'm sure this was a day they'll never forget.

  28. What a fun opportunity for these kids! I remember my uncle use to raise pigeons when I was little. I loved it when he would use them to send a message to someone and they would come back home. That was really a cool thing to a little kid!
