Inspired by Urban Animals and Isabel’s visits, the students of PS 241 have produced a beautiful book with photos taken on Isabel’s tour of the neighborhood and their own observations about these architectural details. Thanks to Behind the Book for helping to create this fun project!
Isabel reads Urban Animals and delivers her message about the excitement, fun, and importance of looking at the beautiful architecture all around us to 250 children at PS 321.
Isabel helps the students at PS 241 write about architectural details on their school and in the surrounding neighborhood!
This week Isabel is in the classroom with students at PS 241 reading her book Urban Animals and talking about architecture in their school’s neighborhood! This visit is another great Behind the Book event, designed to bring authors into public school classrooms. The students had some great questions ready and were eager to learn more about the process behind Isabel’s books.
