Thank you Mr Mercer!

04/03/2011

We’ve learned so much this week from author, Mr Graham Mercer.  Mr Mercer is the author of many non-fiction books about Tanzania and he explained to us about the writing and publishing process. We now understand how much work goes into producing each book we read! He also explained how many people are involved and how it takes a lot of time to produce each book on our library shelves – and we have 20,000 books just here at the elementary library!

We were also very impressed when Mr Mercer could draw elephants, lions and sharks on our library bags when he signed his name.  One student was particularly impressed with his butterflies, “Mr Mercer you are a very good author, you can draw butterflies!”
