Reported by dawn_vieira@ipsd.org on 5/6/16

White Eagle Elementary, with Anderson's Bookshops, is delighted to welcome author Jenna Bush Hager to White Eagle School on Monday, May 16th at 1:45 pm. Mrs. Hager will talk with students about her career and her new book Our Great Big Backyard, which she co-wrotewith her mother Laura Bush.

Our Great Big Backyard helps commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the National Park Service.

Our Great Big Backyard follows Jane, whose plans of spending the summer playing video games with her friends are dashed when her parents announce that her family is going on a road trip to national parks around the country. Yet somewhere between the Evergladesand Big Bend National Park, things begin to change. Jane starts paying attention to the magnificent sights and spends less time looking at her screen. The stunning views open up her imagination as she and her brother see everything that nature has to offer. And the more Jane discovers, the more she realizes how much there is to love about the outdoors whether she's in a national park across the country or right in her own backyard.

Mrs. Hager and Mrs. Bush's first book, Read All About It! is a classroom adventure that will have readers racing to the shelves.

Tyrone rules the school. He's king of the monkey bars, a math machine, and a science whiz. The only thing he doesn't like about school is reading. It's so boring But when strange visitors start dropping by the classroom during story hour, Tyrone discovers there's more to books than just words on pages.
