Henderson author educates kids about chicken pox in delightful new juvenile fiction
HENDERSON, Nev. — This week marks the nationwide release of “The Day the Principal Got the Chicken Pox,” a delightful and informative new children’s book by author Elizabeth Ketter.
Oh no! Ms. Hart, West Elementary’s beloved principal, hasn’t been seen at school. Everyone knows that she has never missed a day of work. Rumors are spreading in the cafeteria during lunch that Ms. Hart has the chicken pox. But what is chicken pox, and how does a person get it? Students are convinced that she couldn’t have the chicken pox but most likely has a chicken box, chicken socks, chicken lox, a computer game called Chicken Fox, or even a chicken clock.
“The Day the Principal Got the Chicken Pox” is a partnership book among students, teachers and parents. Follow along inside West Elementary and discover if the leadership and knowledge of Margaret Ann can put everyone’s fears to rest and if Ms. Hart does in fact have the chicken pox!
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
