Literacy Night at Monroe Early Childhood Center!

img_4014smJudy Tessier invited Nick and the AiA img_4001smteam back to Monroe Early Childhood Center’s Literacy Night again this year to read alound to the younglings.  Nick loves these children!
There were many antics as Nick prepared to read.

But everyone settled down to hear the story of Nick’s pet lion Sandy in a place called Ethiopia!

Thanks to Liz Urban, Nick was able to read his book to kids from Spanish-speaking homes, and made a very special connection with 4-year old Porfirio, a talented author and illustrator in his own right!

Some kids wrote their own stories, and some just illustrated.  How creative this group turned out to be.

Nick enjoyed reconnecting with old families ….

And meeting new families…….
