Forwarded from Diane Cox ( 

Just a note of agreement with what Kim Beebee wrote.  Rooster Morris was at Field 
Club last week and he was absolutely terrific. It was fun to watch the kids take it 
all in. One student asked to check out the books from the library as they lined up 
to go back to the classroom. I told him I just got them and they needed to be 
processed.  He asked if tomorrow morning would be a good time to come back for 
them.  :)

Rooster will be at the Durham Western Heritage Museum this Saturday and his book is 
being serialized in the Omaha World Herald.  Your students might already be aware 
of him and Axle and all the interesting monsters in Bedlam. Rooster and Jody are a 
real joy to work with, and the students truly enjoy his program.  It is strong 
reinforcement for reading and writing, as well as being just plain fun.  

Rooster presents 2 full one hour performances, and has time with the 4th graders 
when they can ask questions, and he talks about writing.  You will have to look a 
lonnnnnnng time before you will find a better deal.  A word of warning, the tunes 
will stick in your mind, and giggles will spread throughout your school.  Kids 
might become excited about reading about a boy's adventures on the planet Mismo, 
and you will have a good day.

Rooster's wife, Jody, takes care of the scheduling and business affairs.  She is 
easily accessible as she checks her email <> often or can be 
called at 1-800-866-2685 or (806) 435-4802.
