2012 -2013  EMAIL PROJECT

We received our first email response
on Thursday, September 14.

Diane deGroat was the first author and illustrator to answer our request to learn about how books can be passports to new places and adventures.  We want to say a big thank you to Diane for passing on our message to some of her friends who have also responded to us.  We especially liked seeing her picture with Eric Carle and learning about some of  her traveling adventures.  To learn more about Diane be sure to visit her website at : http://www.dianedegroat.com
