Students in Miller Avenue School and Wading River Elementary School had
an opportunity to meet award-winning author/illustrator Kathryn Otoshi.
Students prepared for her visit by reading some of her books including
her most popular ones - Zero, One, Two, Beautiful Hands and Draw the
Line and were excited to meet her in person.
She engaged the students in conversations about metaphors and symbolism
and how she builds her stories in layers. They talked about character
development, standing up for one another, community building, leadership
qualities and making a difference in the world.
“Her books are so inspiring to our students,” Wading River Principal Lou
Parrinello said about the stories that help students make connections
through the power of reading, art and literature.
