Guest Author Shares Ways to Spread Kindness

Branch Brook Elementary had a special visit from guest author Courtney Sheinmel on Nov. 3.
Sheinmel, who wrote the “Stella Batts” and “Zacktastic” series, visited with the third-, fourth- and fifth-graders to speak about the debut of her new book, “The Kindness Club: Chloe on the Bright Side.”
Branch Brook students had the opportunity to purchase her new book, which debuted just a few days prior, and have it autographed by the author. Sheinmel spoke with the students about where her ideas and inspirations are found, the writing and editing process, and some of the kindness initiatives she found while preparing for her latest book.

Sheinmel spoke to the students about what kindness means to them and she compiled a list of ideas with the help of student suggestions.
