This morning I had the opportunity to attend a book release party. Mrs. Scavone’s first grade class from Mills Lawn Elementary School published an ABC book, All About Nature. This was my first time to really go out and do an assignment like this, so I was a little nervous at first. But after a few awkward moments, I realized that these first graders were probably more intimidated by the woman with a microphone than I was of having the responsibility to report on their new book. I actually ended up having a lot of fun interviewing the kids and hearing their answers. I posted my interview with Oliver to give you a preview. It seemed like he had more to say after I asked him all of my questions, so then I said, “Do you have anything else to say?” His answer made me laugh. We had to cut it short so he wouldn’t miss out on the group photo. Kids are awesome.
Now I’m working on editing it all together. If it’s good enough, it just might make it on the air for WYSO Weekend. Stay tuned.
