First and second grade students were delighted to welcome local author Matt Reher to the Hillside Library yesterday morning! Matt is a friend of a Hillside family and the author of Blue Whale Babies, Giraffes Like to Eat, and several other books published by American Reading at Home.
The students and teachers sat on the floor on the library and were enthralled by the facts he presented, including that giraffe females eat lower leaves on the tree, and male giraffes eat the higher leaves.
Thank you, Matt, for coming to our school and speaking to our students!
