Author Jarrett J. Krosoczka is visiting NPES this morning!
Jarrett writes and illustrates picture books (Punk Farm, Baghead), graphic novels (Lunch Lady), and chapter books (Platypus Police Squad, Jedi Academy)! He appeals to all of our students!
Jarrett is FANTASTIC and so interesting! In addition to his children’s books, he has a weekly show on SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live that is all about books, authors, and reading (https://soundcloud.com/siriusxmentertainment/the-book-report-with-jarrett-j-krosoczka-september-7th-2016?in=studiojjk/sets/the-book-report-with-jjk-on). He’s been on NPR and has even delivered a TED Talk (http://www.studiojjk.com/JJKsvideolibrary.html).
JJK has an AWESOME website that you can explore. It’s http://www.studiojjk.com/ You can read his biography on his website, listen to his segment on XM Radio (The Book Report), and watch trailers for new books! There are even video games based on his books that students can explore. You may also enjoy watching his TED Talks videos (these are for adults).
Jarrett did a book signing this morning and two large group presentations in the cafeteria for all students to enjoy and learn!
