Big Nate

Do you know a child who loves graphic novels? A child who isn't a big fan of reading at all? A child who thinks nothing can top the humor of Diary of a Wimpy Kid? I've got your cure! Lincoln Perice's Big Nate books are sure to win over boy readers, reluctant readers, or any readers who love to laugh!

My 2nd - 5th grade students were fortunate enough to meet Lincoln Peirce on Monday, April 2nd when he came to Washington School for an amazing author visit. This visit was compliment of my favorite children's book store in Glen Rock, NJ called Books, Bytes and Beyond. Lincoln did 6 presentations that day and my students had an amazing time with him. The students worked at tables cartooning right along with him. Lincoln explained that cartooning is fun because it's both simple and exaggerated. He taught my students that unlike in math there are no right answers when it comes to drawing comics. Pictures tell a story and there are a million ways to show what you want to tell. It doesn't hurt when a New York Times Best-selling author gives you a shout out in his tour blog...great day!
