Hank the CowdogThe 3rd grade students of Mrs. Willie's class enjoyed a wonderful lesson from the author of the "Hank the Cowdog" series. John R. Erikson spoke with the children about his daily life as an author, performed songs about the series with his banjo, and even read an excerpt from one of his books. Each student in the class received a copy of the novel, which they took the time to read before the day of the lesson. The children shared wonderful questions with the author and gained a great appreciation for the wonderful job of being a professional writer.
