Jacqueline Davies

My students were absolutely ecstatic to meet author, Jacqueline Davies!!!  She gave a wonderful presentation as an author and how she is the type of author that tries out different genres.  We are reading her book, Lemonade Wars.  The kids were even more excited when she announced that they are almost ready to publish the sequel (shoot, why can't I remember what she said it was called...I will have to ask my kiddos on Monday-they will know for sure!)  Before she came, we read her book, "The House Takes a Vacation."  This is an absolutely wonderful, imaginative story about a family that goes on vacation, so their house decides it needs a vacation as well.  You can find it here:

Here are the kids with Jacqueline Davies:
