Storytime with Ms. Jo

'The friendly Pirate Captain aka Ms. Jo' written by Jovita Rose and illustrated by Jackson Kleim (9 years old). I wrote this story while looking at a group picture of our Central StrongStart family last Halloween 2019. Hopefully, when you listen and read this story you remember the fun we had during our Halloween party 2019.

Virtual Copy to read out loud to your child ​

'See you later Alligator' written by Jovita Rose. I wrote this story and made this video for our Central Elementary StrongStart families last June. Each of these beautiful animals represents the children in our StrongStart families. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed remembering and writing about your wonderful children.
