   Third-grade students at Canyon Elementary each read a favorite book and then wrote a book report.  As a final activity, they decorated a pumpkin as one of the main characters from the book they read.  Students brought their decorated pumpkin story characters to school to share with their classmates.

Author Visits Canyon
