What. A. Day.
The hive was literally buzzing with excitement as one of our very favorite authors came to visit. Katherine Applegate is the author of the phenomenal book, The One and Only Ivan...a chosen book from the Texas Book Festival's program: Reading Rockstars. The Hive Society had an intimate visit from Ms. Applegate in which we talked about our classroom's creative structure, our love of literature, our amazing slatted art pieces inspired by the books (Thanks, Ms. Caughey), and our deepest wonderings about her and Ivan. It was a monumental day full of happy tears and laughter; our hearts and minds are truly full.
