Kevin Kammeraad visits Valley View Elementary

On January 23 author and musician Kevin Kammeraad visited Valley View Elementary at the request of the Valley View PTO. Kevin wrote children’s books such as A Curious Glimpse of Michigan and The Tomato Collection.

Valley View held an assembly where Kevin sang songs with the children, read from his books and spoke to the children about his writing career. He informed them he started writing when he was their age by keeping daily journals. Later, as an adult, he turned those journals into childrens books. A few students won the chance to have lunch with Kevin. Their parents bid on this opportunity during Valley View’s Parents Night Out silent auction. Kevin and the winning children shared a nice pizza lunch while he further discussed writing and his career as a childrens author.
