Fifth grade had the opportunity to hear Bonnie Doerr on Wednesday. A special thanks to Jamie Southern at Bookmarks for helping make Mrs. Doerr’s visit a reality! Their Authors in Schools & Community program gets authors into places where they can interact with children up close.
Mrs. Doerr has two published books with a third one in the works. In the first book, Island Sting, Kenzie finds herself in the Florida Keys trying to save endangered Key deer.
In book 2, Stake Out, Kenzie rescues sea turtles.
Mrs. Doerr is an engaging speaker and the students had a great time learning about Key deer and sea turtles. Mrs. Doerr introduced them to these endangered species through pictures, interesting anecdotes, and of course, parts of her books!
