Author Visits Academy

Author and illustrator Kathleen Bart recently visited with kindergarten and first-grade students at Academy Street Elementary School to share her love of the written word.

During the event, she retold her story, titled “Town Teddy and Country Bear,” a spin on Aesop’s fable of the town mouse and a country mouse. After sharing the humorous adventure story, Ms. Bart taught the students how to draw their own teddy bears.
