Third Place Books Brings Author/Illustrator Jessixa Bagley To LFP First Graders


Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park brought Seattle author/illustrator Jessixa Bagley to Lake Forest Park Elementary School Library on Thursday, April 13th.

Jessixa shared her wonderful books, “Boats for Papa” and “Laundry Day” with Lake Forest Park’s three first grade classrooms. In addition to reading her books, Jessixa shared her process for writing and illustrating.  Jessixa walked students through the steps she takes to draw “Buckley the Beaver” from “Boats for Papa.”  Each student received a bookmark with an illustration from “Laundry Day” as a gift from Jessixa.  


Lake Forest Park Elementary students and Teacher-Librarian, Frank Kleyn, thank Third Place Books and Jessixa Bagley for sharing your terrific books with us.
