Elementary students in Magnolia ISD had the pleasure of hosting children's book author Aaron Reynolds this week. His wildly entertaining nd presentation encourages students to "love what they read, so they love to read."
Reynolds is a New York Times Bestselling Author and has written many highly acclaimed children's books including, "DUDE!", "Creepy Pair of Underwear" and "Creepy Carrots."
In his talk with students, he talked about the teacher and book that changed his opinion of reading and how he became a published author. In his time with 3rd and 4th-grade Bear Branch Elementary students, his humor carried out as he shared about his first chapter book, "The Incredibly Dead Pets of Rex Dexter", which is also becoming a series. He is currently working on his next set of chapter books a series about three apprentices who decide to impersonate their mentors and become heroes of the realm.
His age-appropriate humor can be seen in the titles of his books such as "A Pair of Creepy Underwear" His presentation for the younger grades included hands-on and highly entertaining talks about this bestseller. Students anticipated his arrival by creating their own pairs of creepy underwear from a lime green paper cut out, and Reynolds brought two surprise friends from his books, "Creepy Carrots" and "Creepy Pair of Underwear."
The PTO at Bear Branch Elementary celebrated his visit by providing snacks for the staff themed from his books.
A huge thank you to Reynolds and his hilarious and interactive presentation to students, encouraging them to read, to love reading, and to find what they love.
