The author of “The Tomato Collection” and several other children’s books recently gave West Godwin Elementary students a few tips in writing, with help from his puppet friends, for March is Reading Month.
With puppets Jacob and Ollie Winston, Kevin Kammeraad sang songs, challenging students to make their own rhymes and poems. He shared with them how he makes his puppets from recycled items, like socks, tin buckets, plastic glasses, butter dishes and stocking caps.
“As a writer, you choose the interesting words to create the pictures in the mind of the reader,” he said.
All students received a copy of his book, “Can You Think It? Can You Dream It?” courtesy of the West Godwin Parent Teacher Organization.
