author and illustrator Linda Kranz will be visiting Pioneer, speaking to the students and signing books.

There's only one you in this great big world. Make it a better place. Adri's mama and papa share some of the wisdom they have gained through the years with their eager son. Their words, simple and powerful, are meant to comfort and guide him as he goes about exploring the world. This exquisitely illustrated book explodes with color and honest insights. Kranz's uniquely painted "rockfish," set against vibrant blue seas, make an unforgettable and truly special impression. Only One You will inspire parents and children of all ages as they swim through life.

Following her visit all the the students will be painting a rock to add to a Pioneer rock garden.

Author and Astronomer Jeffrey Bennett

For children, Dr. Bennett is the creator and author of the award-winning series “Science Adventures with Max the Dog,” which includes Max Goes to the Space StationMax Goes to the MoonMax Goes to Mars, and Max Goes to Jupiter; and of the Earth science focused book The Wizard Who Saved the World. These five children’s titles were selected by the Story Time From Space program as the first set of books to be launched to the International Space Station; launched in January 2014, they have been read by astronauts for children around the world. His latest book for children, I, Humanity, was selected for the second Story Time From Space launch, and joined his other books on the International Space Station in December 2015. Because his textbook The Cosmic Perspective was also taken into space (during the 2009 Space Shuttle servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope),  Dr. Bennett has now had a total of seven books launched into space.
