Author Visits Walnut Hills

Author Tim Smith and his wife, Andy, came to Walnut Hills Elementary on  October 25 to talk with the students about his “Buck Wilder” books.  His “outdoor and back to nature” books were introduced with great stories from “Buck’s” life.  Buck explained what it takes to become an author/illustrator.  He reminded the students that it is okay to mess up…use the eraser and try again!  He emphasized that we all make mistakes and that is part of the learning process.   Buck also encouraged the students to look for a little white worm, Fuzzy, that is hidden in his books and to go outside and explore nature on their own. He showed them how to make a drinking glass out of paper if they ever need one while outside!   Buck stayed to autograph books for students.  A big Walnut Hills thanks to our PTO for sponsoring Buck Wilder!
