Have a Marlis Day!

A First!

These sixth graders read The Secret of Bailey’s Chase on their tablets. All in uniform at this private school near Indianapolis, these students were bright, courteous, and articulate. I did a trivia quiz with them, tossing Hershey kisses for correct answers, and they knew almost all of them. (No one remembered the cat’s name!) During the Q & A time, these young readers asked interesting and thoughtful questions. I only had an hour with them but could have spent the whole day with this class discussing plot, characters, settings, and writing in general. I’m pleased that most are reading the sequel, Back to Bailey’s Chase, and I hope to hear from them when they finish.
