As part of its Specials Week, which promoted this year’s school-wide theme, “Write On, Right On,” Daly welcomed two celebrated authors, Tad Hills and David Paterson.
On Feb. 5, New York Times best-selling author and illustrator, Tad Hills, visited Daly School and delighted students as he read his book, (which, is also Daly’s book of the year), Rocket Writes A Story to them. The students were fascinated to learn how he uses basic shapes to convey different emotions. In response to student questions about how Mr. Hills gets his ideas, he shared many wonderful stories of inspiration, igniting sparks in the students’ imaginations. A second-grade student, Sam Rothenberg, age 7, commented that he was excited to meet “the author of the book of the year and to learn how he comes up with his stories.” Many left the presentation eager to start creating characters and stories of their own.
