The author and illustrator of more than 40 children’s book made a special visit to the Rochester area Thursday morning.
Todd Parr stopped by the Autumn Lane Elementary School in Greece. There he spoke to the children today about love, kindness and feeling good all while including some age-appropriate silliness.
Parr said, “It's always rewarding and it's also connecting with the kids. They get to meet the person who wrote the book they've been hearing about and it just kind of connects the dots. They see someone that can do this and you make a big connection and inspire them and oftentimes kids think they can do this and they write their own book.”
Some of Parr’s books include The Feel Good Book, The Family Book, The Peace Book and The Daddy Book.
