Ada elementary students inspired by sister-author team

By Monty Siekerman

Author/illustrators Janet Stevens (left) and her sister, Susan Stevens Crummel spoke to elementary children at Ada Schools on Tuesday morning.

Janet said it was rewarding to her and her sister to reach out to kids through their books, encourage them to learn to read, and, maybe, inspire some children to be writers and illustrators.

The school sponsored a book fair of the sisters' many books during the past week.

The writers were at Bath school the day before and autographed 600 books that were purchased there.
