Donalyn Miller Excites Students About Summer Reading

Students at Sun Valley Elementary are gearing up for summer reading! For the past several years, SVES students have earned recognition as being #1 in most minutes read in NC and #2 in the world.

Donalyn Miller, author of The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child, surprised the entire school with an author visit on Wednesday, April 22, to congratulate the school on their accomplishments and to challenge everyone to read during this summer.

While at the school, Miller talked to students over the school’s TV broadcasting system. Later, she was seen talking with local student authors Stephany Fernandez-Delgado in Lori Robinette’s 2nd grade class and Ella Kellogg in Shawnta Morrison’s 2nd grade class. Miller discussed how impressed she was with their conservation efforts in creating a website called S.T.A.now (Saving the Animals Now).
