Inspired by Renaissance Elementary 5th Graders!
I visited the 5th Graders at Renaissance Elementary School in Castle Rock, Colorado to talk about writing and The Children's Train. Their questions and comments were thoughtful and smart. They helped me talk about the Kindertransport by acting out some of the characters in the book. They got it. There's nothing like children to understand what other children went through even if it was over 75 years ago. Thank you to Ms. Suzie, Ms. Billie, and Ms. Brittany for allowing me the privilege of interacting with their students. I can't wait to see what stories come from these budding writers!
