Jackson and A2 Students Make a Monster with Author Tom Lichtenheld
Author and illustrator, Tom Lichtenheld visited Jackson Elementary and
A2 Charter School in October as part of the Children's Book Festival in
Sheboygan. His presentation "will inspire students to write and draw
stories about their own life and the ordinary things that happen to
them," said first grade teacher, Karen Karste. Lichtenheld was very
friendly and interacted with all the students.
Following the presentation, he autographed books that were available by
pre-sale to students at Jackson.. He made each student feel special as
he conversed with them while signing their book.
The most popular books among the students were "Why Are You So Grumpy?"
followed by "Shark vs. Train" and "Everything I Know About Monsters".
Author Tom Lichtenheld creates a monster based on students' suggestions.
