Meeting Lisa Yee

A week ago the author Lisa Yee came to visit the school that I work at.  When the librarian initially told me that the author is coming I thought that was pretty cool to get to meet her. After listening to her presentation I was even more excited to meet her.  She is such a super neat lady and is such an inspiration. After her presentation we all lined up in front of the library to purchase some books, meet her, and get our books signed.  I purchased two of the American Girl books that she wrote about two girls that live in Hawaii- one for me and one for my daughter.  I also purchased a book for my son.  Both of my kids thought that it was lots of fun getting to meet an author and to get her autograph.  Each of them surprised her with a package of Peeps since they are her favorite.  When it was my turn to meet her I presented her with a gift from my school family to say "thanks" for coming to visit our school.

On the bag I attached a tag that I made for her in the shape of a rocket.  (During lunch time two weeks ago the librarian and I looked at Lisa's blog to see what she likes.  She likes space, Winnie the Pooh, Sock Monkeys, and most of all Peeps.)  Inside the rocket I put three of her favorite characters.  Here is a close up of the tag.

After meeting Lisa and hearing her presentation about the books that she wrote I became more interested in purchasing her books.  I purchased 5 more of her books this week that the librarian had extras of.  I can't wait to have some time to read them.
