13-Story Treehouse US tour: Day 15 April 29th
The final day of the tour began in a blaze of Northern California sun with a visit to the very excited students at Miwok Valley School.
Then a very enjoyable morning tea with the Miwok writers’ group
and out into the country
to picturesque Liberty school.
After lunch it was Old Adobe Elementary (“Can you say ‘Adobe’?” Sorry, that’s another Pee Wee’s Big Adventure joke for those of you who are still awake)
for a really fun session with the students (who I only managed to remember to photograph as they were leaving)
and then, to possibly the most spectacular destination of the entire trip, a REAL LIVE TREEHOUSE!!!
Michelle and Bill: artists & treehouse visionaries
Then it was back to Copperfield’s books … yet another spectacular bookstore
(That staircase leads down to an entire floor of used books!)
With Grace Bogart and Patty Norman who organised all the schools, the visit to the treehouse and then dinner with their ‘Brainstormers’ book group … a group of committed readers and educators … this was really fun!
Mmmmm … deep dish pizza …
the perfect way to end a book tour! (Note to self: must remember to include a deep dish pizza restaurant in the next treehouse renovation.)
