Yesterday, I went to meet the sixth grade students of one of my teacher friends, Maribel Méndez. She had assigned ‘The World Within’ to her class and I was invited to visit the school, Concepción Méndez Cano in Caguas, and meet the students. I was, and still am, very thrilled because this is the first group of students who got to read my book and they loved it!
Sorry the photo is a bit out of focus, but you can appreciate the teacher, her classroom and two of the students. This is when she introduced me to the class.
The kids were paying attention to all I said and they came prepared with many important questions they wanted me answer.
Well, yes, you can tell I was very happy to be there.
I got to sign their books. This girl wanted to see what I was writing. They were all so happy too.
And a group photo, of course! I hope many more children get to read it. In case you’re interested, here are the links where you can download or get a printed copy of The World Within:
