Alan Katz Visits AG Elementary
Children’s author, Alan Katz, shared the joys of reading and writing during an author visit on September 18th. Mr. Katz is the author of more than 30 highly acclaimed children’s books, including Take Me Out of the Bathtub and Other Silly Dilly Songs, Don’t Say That Word!, OOPS!, Ricky Vargas: The Funniest Kid in the World and The Day the Mustache Took Over. His first two non-fiction books (combining facts and laughs), Awesome Achievers in Science and Awesome Achievers in Technology, came out in 2019.
Mr. Katz did four presentations during the day and met with all preschool-5th grade students. He talked about being creative and encouraged students to keep a writer’s notebook and jot their ideas down. He shared different parts of his books and invited students to sing along to Silly Dilly Songs. Mr. Katz definitely inspired students to read and write! Student Council members hosted Mr. Katz for lunch, as well.
A special thanks to the AG Foundation for funding Alan Katz’s visit through a foundation grant and the elementary PTO for purchasing books for a book raffle.
