Eagle View Elementary School students will participate in educational activities during the school day Monday, March 2, with author Julia Cook.
With more than a million books in print, Cook, a former school counselor and teacher, never dreamed she could evolve into an award-winning children's book author.
Several years ago, Cook was searching for an effective way to teach children about the difference between tattling and telling. When she could not find the right resource, she decided to write her own book, "Tattle Tongue."
She now has more than 50 published books and activity guides, and she travels the country inspiring others.
"There are so many ideas out there that need to be shared," said Cook, who takes top research and creativity and translates it into "kid language" that is both entertaining and engaging.
Her light, humorous approach keeps kids laughing while they're learning good behavior skills. The goal behind all of Cook's books and efforts is to actively involve people into her fun and creative stories and teach them to become lifelong problem solvers.
Parents can join in on the fun, interactive learning in an evening session from 6-7 p.m. Monday, March 2, in the Eagle View Media Center. The parent/family session is free.
Call Pequot Lakes Community Education at 218-568-9200 to sign up for the presentation. Pre-registration will help with room set up and planning.
Each participant will be able to select one of Cook's books. Parent book topics include "The D word" and "My Mom Thinks She is My Volleyball Coach .. But She's Not!" Children will be able to choose from a variety of children's books.
The evening parent/family session is provided by the Pequot Lakes, Breezy Point and Crosslake Early Childhood Coalition, a regional partner with the Initiative Foundation. The evening session is open to preschool through fourth-grade children and their parents.
