Mike shared his endearing and beautiful book, “Little Elliot Big City” with all four of the first grade classrooms. In addition to reading the story, Mike shared the life experiences which led him to become an author/illustrator, as well as his process for writing and illustrating books.

He even let us keep his fantastic sketches to decorate the walls of our classrooms. Teacher-Librarian Frank Kleyn and the first grade students at Highland Terrace extend a big thank you Third Place Books and Mike Curato!
