Mrs. Kidds' class Skyped with author Mike Artell to ask:(Why authors write books?) He told us that he writes books to entertain and teach us things. He shared some of his books with us and read one called: Petite Rouge ( A Cajun Red Riding Hood)to the children in a Louisiana accent. He also showed us how he draws and illustrates stories how he colors and shades them in. The children were excited to get the chance to ask questions to a real author. We had a great experience and the children enjoyed the opportunity.
