One of the best things in reading to school children during 'I love to Read' month is being constantly taken aback by the amazing creativity kids possess.
At Bernie Wolfe I met one boy who really impressed me. Liam Korchoski took me aback somewhat with the questions he asked: 'Did you self-publish? Did you do the illustrations yourself or did you hire someone to do them for you?' I immediately asked if he was interested in writing and for the next ten minutes he was very enthusiastic in telling me about his body of work. He agreed to send me a copy of one of his comics and with his parents' permission, I am posting it for all to see.
Liam... I absolutely LOVED your enthusiasm. Your imagination made me smile! You are an awesome comic book creator and I hope you never stop making them! Keep on doing what you love and always love what you do!
Thank you to the kids at Stanley Knowles, Bernie Wolfe and Island Lakes for making my visits so wonderful! 'I love to read month ' ROCKS and it was an extremely cool experience sharing my story with you!
