The Day School and Religious School were fortunate to host Jewish children's book author, Dori Weinstein, yesterday. Ms. Weinstein is currently on tour in Florida, promoting her book series, YaYa & YoYo. Her first book in the series, Sliding Into the New Year, won a Moonbeam Children's Book Award gold medal.
Ms. Weinstein's presentation to our Kindergarten through 6th grade students was about how a simple idea can turn into a great book. She talked about the writing and editing process, and how dedication, hard work, and patience can make a publishing dream come true.
We are grateful to Rabbi Olitzky who organized this event and to our PTA for funding it. Most of all, we are glad to have had the opportunity to visit with and learn from a great author and make a new friend. Thank you, Dori!
