Wyncote Hosts Children’s Book Author Baptiste Paul

Baptiste Paul Author VisitOn Friday, Feb. 25, Wyncote hosted a visit with Baptiste Paul, the author of six children’s books, including the soon-to-be released “Climb On.” Students and staff learned about Paul’s life and inspirations, what goes into researching a book, heroes, peace and so much more. Engaging through storytelling and student participation, Paul had the attendees laughing, cheering and hollering. He answered questions and listened to students’ dreams all while inspiring them to be the leaders of tomorrow. 

Each classroom teacher and the library received autographed copies of his books, and Paul autographed a soccer ball for each grade to help students remember this visit and Paul’s book, “The Field.” Wyncote also received a copy of “Climb On!” 

Thank you to the Wyncote PTO and Wyncote staff for making this event possible. Learn more about the author at
