On February 22nd, I spent one of the best days ever with the 3rd Graders at Mohawk Avenue School here in my town. I went to talk to them about The Last Rhino, but more importantly, to share with them the reasons why I wrote the book. When I told them that there were less Sumatran rhinos left in the world than we had people in the room, their mouths dropped open, and I think it really hit home just how serious and important conservation efforts are to save rhinos. When I walked into the auditorium, I was truly blown away by what the children had done in preparation for my visit. Together with librarian, Heather Freda, and art teacher Allison Keenan, the children did online research, created posters and videos, compared their footprints to a rhino's, and made a time capsule where they will share their thoughts about rhinos with people in the future. They even made two "king-size sheet" paintings of rhinos to contribute to the Rhino Record Project. This project will collect contributions of rhino art from around the world, sew it all together, and create the Guinness Book of World Records largest-ever painting. They hope to ultimately display it in Vietnam, one of the worst offenders in the use of illegally obtained rhino horn. The students' compassion and caring for rhinos touched my heart and gave me hope for the future of wildlife. And I am so impressed by their teachers and librarian who went above and beyond to instill that caring and compassion. In the next few days, the children will be choosing a rhino to adopt on behalf of their school, and I can't tell you how many of them asked if we could PLEEEASE adopt them all. What a wonderful group of students! I was SO PROUD of them.
