As part of the school’s Pick a Reading Partner weeklong celebration, children’s author/illustrator Dan Yaccarino visited Levy Lakeside School, where he spoke about his inspiration and path to his profession, while also sharing samples of a variety of his work.

Some of Yaccarino’s more notable books include “Doug Unplugged,” “Unlovable” and “I Am a Story.” He is also known for his work on the animated television series “Oswald” and “The Backyardigans.” 

At the end of each of three assemblies, Yaccarino answered students’ questions. He also enjoyed lunch with a group of third-graders in the school library, when it was his turn to ask the questions and learn more about these students as readers and writers. Yaccarino also signed copies of his books for his gracious hosts.
