Elmcrest Author Visit
This year, Elmcrest was fortunate to welcome Salina Yoon!
Salina Yoon is an award winning children's author and illustrator. Her book, Be A Friend, is nominated for the 2017-2018 Bresnahan Book Award.
Yoon's book , Penguin and Pinecone, was the inaugural Bresnahan Book Award winner in 2014.
The Bresnahan Book Award was established to honor the life of Bresnahan, who passed away in March 2013. One of her great passions was sharing books with children, and the library media specialists decided that there was no better way to keep her love of literature alive than by creating a book award in her honor.
Yoon presented 2 assemblies on March 1st - one to Kindergarten through Third Grade, and a second to Fourth through Sixth Grade.
EE students and staff were thrilled to learn more about Salina, read along with her, and see her draw!
The halls of EE were all decorated in art and pictures inspired by Yoon's books.
