Cooperating School Districts’ distance learning program, New Links, is pleased to announce the return of author James Otis Thach for a few videoconferences- and a live stream of the morning events (courtesy of MOREnet)– tomorrow at both 9 and 10:30.
James is a Missouri native and the author of A Child’s Guide to Common Household Monsters, The Tickle Monster is Coming and his latest, The Seal Pup. This will be the fourth time James has videoconferenced live from CSD; he will read from his book, The Seal Pup. The story follows the quest of a lone seal, trying to reunite with his herd. James will also talk about the true story than inspired the book, and about the long journey of making a book. James will also share related videos, and invite the kids to use their research and library skills to find the documentary the book is based upon. This event’s target audience is elementary students.
