Win Books for Your Classroom!

From: Ellen Jackson, award winning author of more than 50 books for children

Which is your favorite month of the year? Is it April, the month of warbling mockingbirds, sunlight and breezes? Is it October , the month of mystery when doors creak, windows rattle, and owls hoot in the darkness?

If you are an elementary school classroom teacher, you are invited to send Ellen Jackson an e-mail of fifty words or less stating which month of the year is your favorite and why. Your e-mail should include the following information: your name, name of your school, address, and phone number. This information will be used for no other purpose than to send you your prize if you should win.

Two teachers will receive Ellen Jackson's twelve-book series IT HAPPENS IN THE MONTH OF.JANUARY, etc. These delightful books are full of fascinating facts about each month, including information on plants, animals, people, the calendar, and important events. Each book ends with a folk tale, myth, or story that characterizes the month. In addtion, each prize winner will receive a video of Ellen Jackson's hilarious children's story, CINDER EDNA.
