Canyon Ridge welcomes Matthew McElligot, author

Author Matthew McElligot spent the day at Canyon Ridge Elementary School on January 17 showing students the admirable life of an author and illustrator. He took the students through one of his fabulous books and showed them each step in the process of getting published.

"It was amazing to see how the students were able to make connections to their own experiences as an author and learn new steps and tips, as well," said Kolby McNeely, teacher. "Matthew took the time to show every detailed step it takes to create his intricate illustrations and the technology he used was simply fabulous. Our students asked some very thoughtful questions about becoming authors and walked away with an unforgettable experience."
