The Big Eclipse at Cathedral School!
Elaine Cuyler, publisher of The Big Eclipse, and Nancy Coffelt, the book’s author and illustrator, met with kids at Cathedral School in Portland, Oregon, on June 9.
We had such a great time teaching how eclipses work, why this one will be SO cool, and how to keep your eyes safe during the partial phases. Nancy got a bit carried away drawing critters that might cause an eclipse if you were writing your own eclipse myth. She drew everything from a hamster that hid the sun in a cheek pocket to a a polar bear that gulped down the sun until it got uncomfortably hot!
A big thank you to Cathedral School’s science teacher, Mrs. Rae, for bringing us to Cathedral!
