Award-Winning Children's Author Salina Yoon Visits Lindbergh Elementary

Salina Yoon and students

Lindbergh Elementary School students recently enjoyed an inspiring visit by award-winning childen’s author and illustrator Salina Yoon.

The students enjoyed hearing what motivated Yoon to write her picture books. She also drew some of her popular characters such as Penguin, Bear and Little Duck.

Yoon inspired students to find ideas in their own lives for writing books and to enjoy drawing and viewing illustrations as well. Students were left with a message to “Read, Read, Read!”  Special thanks goes out to the Lindbergh Elementary PTA for generously providing this opportunity.

Yoon was born in South Korea and emigrated to the U.S. at the age of 4. She has won numerous awards for her books, including the interactive "Kaleidoscope" and "Pinwheel" books, and the popular "Penguin" book series.
