Award Winning Children's Author visits Durant Students

Bully Beans.
A raindrop.
And, according to an informal poll I took out at recess, the best story.....a Booger.

Who woulda thunk it? 

Children's author, Julia Cook paid a visit to students at our elementary school yesterday. 

Totallly engaging, entertaining and educating. 
Who woulda thought that a "booger" can teach a lesson? 
An award winning author....that's who!

She was amazing.  The kids were totally into her high energy presentation.

She travels with her two working dogs, Angus and Jake.  Cute little dogs.  Dogs that made the kids go all gooey and "ahhhhhhh!" when she took them out of their little doggie suitcase.

BUT....the lesson she teaches with these cute little dogs is to get them to think not  "ahhhhh," but "oh" when they see a stranger with a cute dog. 
A stranger who could be a "scooper."
Someone who could be using a cute dog to "scoop" kids up and take them away.

Fascinating presentation. 
Like I said, educational, entertaining and engaging. 

I wanna be like her when I grow up.
Except different.
But sorta the same.
You know!
