Newman Elementary Connects with Author of Award-Nominated Book

Feb 10, 2015

Third graders at Frisco ISD's Newman Elementary School connected via Skype in January with Kim Baker, author of the Texas Bluebonnet Award nominated book, Pickle.

Students read the book in the fall and received autographed bookmarks from Baker as well.

Students took the opportunity to ask Baker about her writing strategies, where she got her ideas for the book and more. She encouraged them to write about topics they’re excited about.

“I think that the main thing that a writer needs to be is curious,” she told them.
