Cynthia Lord visited Fruit Street School on Friday, October 14, 2016. Ms. Lord has written several books for children including, Hot Rod Hamster, Rules and the Shelter Pet Squad series. She loves animals and has bunnies, a guinea pig and a dog. She writes about her writing process on her webpage: “…the sun comes up while I’m writing, and my dog, Milo, comes in and lies in my lap. The sound of his breathing and my fingers hitting the keys are the only sounds in the room.”. The pictures below are from her website. If you’d like to learn more about her, click here. We so enjoyed her visit and learned so much about the writing process! Our kiddos loved learning about how she does research and learns everything she can about a topic before writing about it. She has inspired us to be authors too!
