"Sheep in a Jeep" author Nancy Shaw is shipping out to Bowling Green next week.
Shaw will do programs at all four Bowling Green elementary schools and at the Wood County District Public Library on Tuesday.
Shaw has written the children's books "Raccoon Tune" and "Elena's Story," part of the "Tales of the World" series, and other "sheep" stories, "Sheep on a Ship," "Sheep in a Shop," "Sheep Out to Eat" and "Sheep Blast Off."
"We chose Mrs. Shaw to visit because she has written books that appeal to different age levels and her books are written from personnel experiences as a young child," said Jennifer Ostrowski, reading specialist at Kenwood Elementary, where Shaw will spend Monday.
She is scheduled for Conneaut Elementary on Tuesday and Crim and Ridge schools on Wednesday. Her library program, which is open to the public, is Tuesday at 7 p.m.
Ostrowski said Shaw's visit is part of Kenwood's reading focus this school year. Students have set a goal of reading 3.5 million minutes, trying to top last year's 3 million minutes.
"The author visit keeps the children excited about continuing to read towards their personal reading goals and to help meet the 3.5 million minute challenge," Ostrowski said.
The school district visit is being funded by the Bowling Green Kiwanis, Bowling Green Schools Foundation, each elementary school's Parent-Teacher Organization and the Bob Blinn family.
