After our author visit with Jeanette Canyon or with any author I always hope the children come out of the experience inspired and interested in literacy. I had one student who went home and wrote an entire book, just like Jeanette Canyon. He didn't have polymer clay on hand but had some great playdough to use as his media. When he showed me his work, I just beamed inside and out, our work at school combined with the author visit had made an impact on a child's life. He was inspired and interested in literacy. His phrasing didn't resemble Jeanette Canyon's but I felt his written words was a collection of things we had read this school year.
The book was saved in a pdf. format and you can find it here at docstoc.com. This is my first time attaching a pdf. format and using docstoc.com. I would recommend selecting full screen and then view 3x3, you get to see the whole book at one time.
