School Author Visit Review, Created Assembly Style for the Entire School — Grades TK-6:

Ms. Caprelli showed up for an author visit at our school first thing all smiles and hugs with a life size Unicorn Jazz in tow. She set up in our library with Jazz and tons of activities and extras for teachersAll of our kindergarteners squealed with delight and were truly in awe. Lisa shared her story about how she and her team came to create the Unicorn Jazz book. She read them Bee-ing Happy Book and truly engaged every student about what the characters and scenes in each page meant to her.

We had a writers workshop with 5th graders next. She shared her book and explained how to use the writing template she provided. They were all so inspired and excited to collaborate and then share in small groups, their own stories in a speed writing session. We moved on to an assembly with our 2nd thru 4th graders, approximately 230 students.

She shared with them the Unicorn Jazz friendship song. Everyone danced, clapped, high-fived and sang along. We were then treated to a sneak peek of her newest book Eye See You. Everyone was overjoyed and can’t wait for its release! After that we moved on to a group of our 1st graders who were again in awe of Ms. Caprelli and giant Jazz. We ate lunch in the library with several of my library helpers. She got to know them a bit, even took the time to listen to a short story one of them created about Jazz. She had another wonderful reading & singing session with more kinder and TK students. We had one more exciting writers workshop with more 5th graders. Then sadly we had to say goodbye. All along the way she was posing for pictures for and with us: Signing books, cards and notebooks for anyone who asked. She smiled all through the ambitious day I scheduled for us. 

She is such a humble and kind soul. We were all Unicorn Jazz fans before she came, but she made this a day that anyone who met her will not soon forget! We feel truly honored to have had her at McKinley Elementary and can’t wait for her to return. ~Librarian, Ashley Fisher, Tracy Unified School District
