Children's Author Reads to Local Elementary School Students

A children's author is making her way across elementary schools in the area.

Today Julia Cook took some time to read to the kids at Vestal Hills and African Road Elementary Schools.

Cook is the winner of the Mom's Choice and Association for Education Publishers Distinguished Achievement Awards.

She has more than 100 published books, which are frequently read in the classrooms at African Road Elementary School.

Lucinda Steele, School Counselor said, "The teacher has read some of her books I have read some of her books to the kids so I think its just really interesting to have the person here to talk about her books and for the kids to see that authors do exist."

Cook will also visit Tioga Hills and Glennwood Elementary schools. She'll be reading to families tomorrow at 7 p.m. inside the African Road Elementary School auditorium.
