Every 4th grader had an author visit with Mike Graf last week, who shared tips about writing realistic fiction while illustrating his points with virtual visits to many of our National Parks. Graf’s Adventures with the Parkers series is a great introduction to the “Every Kid in a Park” initiative of the Obama administration and the Department of the Interior, which is granting every 4th grade student and their family a FREE PASS to all National Parks for the entire year! For more information about this amazing project, see the Every Kid in a Park website.
The Falcon Guides featured on the left show the covers of Mike Graf’s Adventures with the Parkers series. He had the manuscript of the 13th title in his backpack as he was giving his author talk!
Many thanks to the Berkeley Public Schools Fund for supporting this author visit for all our 4th grade students, and what a great launch of Every Kid in a Park.
