Award Winning Author on Tour of Tri-City Elementary Schools
PASCO, Wash. -- For weeks, students at Livingston Elementary School have been reading books by Mexican American author George Ancona. On Wednesday, they got a chance to meet him.
Ancona is on a three-week tour of several elementary schools in the Tri-Cities. He's working on his 113th book, all of which were illustrated by photos he has taken. Ancona said his main goal is to let children realize their self-worth through creative expression.
"I would like them to know that I know each and every one of them is an individual", said Ancona. "That there's no one in this world like them".
