ORIGIN early 17th cent.: via French from Italian gazzetta, originally gazeta de la novità (because the news-sheet sold for a gazeta, a Venetian coin of small value)

Eagerly Awaiting Erica's Visit

My second graders at the French International School are eagerly awaiting the visit of author Erica Silverman. They adore Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa, those two sparky and tender friends. They've come up with questions for the author, they've prepared a Readers Theatre performance for the author, and they will all wear bandanas on the day of her visit to show how we psyched we are, and how we'd all like to live on a ranch. They will even sing a French version of Cocoa's Lullaby!

Our school librarian, Elodie Domenge, has prepared a display to make Erica feel at home. We can't wait! Yee-haw!
