Tryon Elementary School Visit - Uncovering Earth's Secrets

One of my favorite parts of illustrating for children is the opportunity to go into classrooms and speak with the kids.  It's funny, every time I do it I learn something new from them and it's such a refreshing and inspiring break from the many, many...many hours I spend in the studio.  So, I was of course very excited to visit Tryon Elementary School in Tryon, North Carolina last week to talk to the 4th and 5th grade classes about the most recent book I've illustrated Uncovering Earth's Secrets: Science and Adventure on the JOIDES Resolution (which is available as a free download on the iPad here).  

Some of the kids read the book before I visited...check out their awesome drawings! 

Thank you to TES fro the opportunity and a great day! And thank you Deep Earth Academy for the posters, pencils, & tattoos fro the kids!
