Author Visits Rothschild Elementary School

Link to Wausau Daily Herald article, "Rothschild Elementary School students bring books to life during author Diane Shore visit".

Excerpt: The floor of the Rothschild Elementary School library rumbled as students helped bring a book to life.

The students stomped in unison and yelled until first-grader Jameson Morgan called out "quiet" on cue.

The students were recreating a scene from "Rosa Loves to Read," a book that depicts one reader's frustration with multiple distractions.

The scene was just one of many activities the 350 students at the school completed on Thursday with author Diane Shore, the Marietta, Ga.,-based writer visited Wisconsin schools last week to promote her books and the importance of literacy.
