Author visits 2nd-graders

Hawaii children’s book author Gill McBarnet met with three 2nd-grade classes in the Kihei Elementary School Library on Sept. 1. She then read aloud from her book “Happy as a Dolphin” as the dolphin is the Kihei school mascot. The local nonprofit organization Read Aloud America purchased six of McBarnet’s books and a special drawing was held. Two students from each class were selected to receive an autographed copy of one of her books.
