[slideshow_deploy id=’75826′]

Students at Williams Elementary School welcomed author and illustrator, Mardell E. Alberico, as she introduced her children’s book series “Perry the Pack Rat”.

On March 3, 2016, Alberico read her books to students, answered questions, and signed copies of her book.

The visit was scheduled as part of the Read Across America Week celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Williams Elementary Teacher, Veronica Garrett arranged the visit.

“I wanted them to meet a successful author and know you can literally come from anywhere and be an author and illustrator, no limits,” said Garrett.

Alberico who resides in Northern California has shared her stories about Perry to well over a hundred and fifty schools.

“All of my stories offer a gentle message with a tug at your heartstrings and colorful, whimsical, illustrations,” said Alberico.

Alberico has plans to return to WES in May to visit the Kindergarten students.
