#SOL19: Dreamers

Fascinated? 

Mesmerized? 

Literary? 

Artistic? 

Amazing? 

What superlatives can even begin to describe this work of  art and majesty? 

And this author?

I want to be in Austin today to hear Yuyi live at the Scholastic Summit.  But I’ve watched last week’s FB Live with Yuyi three times since Friday. Three times. Pausing. Writing. Watching. Writing.

Reflecting on the gifts that immigrants bring . . . and process over product.

What are you learning today? 

What are you reading or writing?   

What are you dreaming?

I’m at Hamline’s Summer Literacy Institute this week and today’s keynote is . . .

    Yuyi’s talk with us was so incredible. I too have watched and rewatched it. It is so powerful to hear authors describe their process and journey. I wish everyone could see that video!

  3. Great authors captivate and inspire us,We are lucky with today’s technology that we can see and hear them even when we can’t physically be in their presence.

    Thank you for linking Yuyi’s reflection on her book, “Dreamers.” We read her book as part of our #MockCaldecott unit last year. I wish I had known about this video sooner! I have a new appreciation for each of the elements in her book and love the way she says that English and Spanish are like siblings. I continue to be inspired by the work of educators near and far to be changemakers. Enjoy your time at the institute!
