Dear Mrs. Mora,
We hope to find you well! We are writing to say THANK YOU! My class recently read your story, Gracias~Thanks, and my students were inspired by all the things we could say “thank you” for, so we wanted to give our very own “thanks”. Your writing has kept us grounded in the classroom each day and humbles our day to day experience as we say “thank you” to the many things and people that deserve it. Here are some photos of student work for you to enjoy.
These are from 1st-3rd graders at Uplift Heights Primary School in Dallas, Texas and are also a part of the non-profit program that I work for, Readers 2 Leaders. I recently came across your work as I have been expanding my library to include more bilingual titles, and your stories continue to be our favorites. With the majority of my students coming from Spanish-speaking homes, your stories take on new meaning and cause for celebration in our classroom. Thank you for inspiring theses young minds and for the beautiful stories you have given us.
