Carmel Elementary School recently welcomed Miss Jackie as a special guest who read and sang with more than ten classes. Many of the students have been learning about fairy tales and fables during the first quarter and Miss Jackie read Silly Goose's Big Story by Keiko Kasza. The students also learned how to tell if a book is authored by one person and illustrated by another. In the case of Silly Goose, Ms. Kasza is both the author and illustrator. Each group also enjoyed fan favorite, Pete the Cat, written by Eric Litwin. Carmel parent Matt Rasnick said, “My daughter came home with a bookmark from FoxTale today; she's in 2nd grade at Carmel Elementary school. She is very enthusiastic about a story that she heard today, about a cat who keeps stepping in different colors and singing a little song about it each time.”
Miss Jackie is pictured reading to Ms. Roth’s and Ms. Wheeler’s first grade classes. Jackie Tanase is a co-owner of FoxTale Book Shoppe located adjacent to Woodstock City Park in Downtown Woodstock at 105 East Main Street. Miss Jackie hosts regular story time in the Shoppe on Mondays and Saturdays at 11am and enjoys going out to the local schools to read to students. For more info visit www.foxtalebookshoppe.com.
