Children's Author Rosie Pova coming to Hickey

Hickey Elementary PTA is proud do sponsor a day with children's author, Rosie Pova, on Wednesday, 12/6/18.

Rosie Pova

The Hickey Elementary PTA is excited to bring children's author Rosie Pova to our school for our students.

She'll share her story about becoming an author and will talk about the writing process. She hopes to inspire our students to enjoy a lifetime of reading and to spark their imaginations to dream big.

Pova is the author of Cibyls Award nominated picture book, Sarah's Song, which Kirkus Reviews called " . . . a heartwarming book." It's a story about a granddaughter and the special bond she shares with her grandma through singing and dancing. If I Weren’t With You, is a picture book about a mother bear's reassurance of love and security as her and her cub explore the forest and have an intriguing conversation. Rosie also authored a humorous middle grade reader titled Hailey Queen Pranking Makes Perfect: The Alien Encounter about fourth grade prankster Hailey who feels like an alien in her own world until an alien comes into her life and shows her what it means to be human.

Ms. Pova will stay and personally sign her books for our students. These books MUST BE ordered in advance by parents, so we receive them in time from the publisher for her Dec. 5th visit. Order forms will be sent home in early October and are due October 31st.
