Author Visit--Michael Shoulders...

Today we had a VERY special treat!  Visiting author, Michael Shoulders, came to AEEC!  We were able to go to the Tiger's Den for his amazing performance!  I hope you enjoy the videos--I can tell you he is the BEST author we've had at AEEC thus far!!!
Also, you can check out his website: http://michaelshoulders.com/.
Our sweet class waiting patiently.

Sorry it's hard to see, but this is a picture of all of the books Mr. Shoulders has written.

He was quite entertaining!

He performed a magic trick (see video below).


I learned something very interesting and new.  Every book (and magazine) is printed on one large piece of paper, and then cut!





He even let a friend in Blue pod dress up!

He "rapped" a song for us at the end!



You absolutely MUST watch the videos just to get a glimpse of what a great time we had!
