Hardyston Elementary School hosted a pajama party author visit with Jancee Dunn. Her picture book “I’m Afraid your Teddy is in Trouble” was shared with students in Pre-K to grade 2.

Hardyston Elementary School was the first stop for author Adam Gidwitz to promote his new series, Unicorn Rescue Society. Third- and fourth-grade students were entertained with a multimedia presentation including an entrance exam into the society. Students are looking forward reading the first title when it is released in April.

Both visits were courtesy of Sparta Books.
