Fourth grade students were introduced to Mitali Perkins today, as she came to tell her stories, introduce her books and talk about writing (and living!) between two cultures.  The students were excited about her visit, and made several signs to welcome her into our library.

After an hour of story telling, question-answering and hands-on activities (Tre and Iris modeled the traditional clothing VERY well!), 4th graders were eager to get their hands on her books.  I hope they will be inspired by her stories and characters!

the visit was fun and I really liked the spice but it smelled pretty bad to me. I wanted to try on the robe thing because it looked really cool

This visit was so interesting and I hope Mitali comes back! I think all her books look FANTASTIC. The only thing I did not like about this was the cardamom. It was fun to crush, but the smell was too powerful. I could still smell it (and taste it) when I left the library! ;)

I actually liked the smell, but it was powerful, and when I came back to the library for library, I found a piece of cardamom on the ground and the library STILL smelled like cardamom. But aside from that, the visit was great. I am going to get bamboo people out of the newton library for sure.

Mitali is an awesome person! I wonder what it was like to live in India. The different kinds of foods she described sounded so good. But I'm gonna stick with American food. Plus, her books look really good. I'm thinking of reading Rickshaw Girl. :)
