Wow, now we truly understand the power of the blog. Earlier this year we read the fantastic action-adventure novel “Chocolate River Rescue” by Jennifer McGrath Kent. I had made a post showing pictures of the actual river in New Brunswick on my travels this summer. On Tuesday evening, while moderating comments, I saw Jennifer’s name as the author on my post. She found our blog when searching the Petitcodiac River and made a comment. You can imagine the students’ surprise when I asked them to check out the comments on the “Chocolate River Rescue” blog post.
When I was in school, we would sometimes write authors and if we were lucky, a year later our teacher would find us in our new classrooms and present us with a letter. Now, in my classroom, authors find us! Thank you Jennifer McGrath Kent for inspiring us to write and share!
