Poet captivates young writers


Jack Prelutsky signs autographs after reading from his classic, “Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant,” Nov. 6 in the auditorium of The Children’s School. The visit from the inaugural Children’s Poet Laureate 2006-2008 was a treat for the students who have been studying Prelutsky and poetry as part of their writers workshops. Before Prelutsky’s reading, the first-graders performed an imaginative poem set to music.
