Local Author Reads To Washington STEM Students
WARSAW — On Monday, April 24, Jonna Watson came to Christi Overman’s second-grade classroom at Washington STEM Academy to read “Ruby the Rubber Band Learns Her Limits: A Case of Being Too Stretchy.”
Thanks to the donations of some local book lovers, each student also got to take home an autographed copy of the book.
In the book, children learn about the main character, Ruby, who wants to please others, while struggling as she is stretching herself thin. This is a great book for children and adults alike to understand their own personal limits and learn some valuable lessons along the way.
Students in Overman’s class just had a writing celebration on Friday, April 21, to share their own books they wrote this school year. Because of their newfound knowledge of writing their own books, they had a lot of questions for Watson about the writing process and how she came up with the idea for her book.
“Getting to meet Jonna was inspiring because we often don’t get to meet the writers of the books that we love so much,” said Overman.
Watson is a Warsaw Community Schools parent herself, with four kids at Harrison Elementary School. She is a school psychologist and has a podcast called “The Five Minute Inner Child.” This is Watson’s second children’s book. Both “Ruby the Rubber Band Learns Her Limits” and “A Great Lakes Tale: Superior Learns She’s Part of the Flow” are available on Amazon and BarnesandNoble.com.
