Mrs. Jakubic has also offered to purchase his books for the library and for the art room, so copies will be available in the school.



Dear Parent –

Your student has the opportunity to meet Jon Agee, well known author/illustrator of children’s books.  He will be visiting us from San Francisco, California for only two days (June 6 & 7) so he only has time to visit four schools in Dearborn.   

The Book Beat Bookstore in Oak Park will host a public book signing on Sunday, June 9th.   Jon will be there from 2 – 3:30 p.m.  Book Beat is located at 26010 Greenfield in Oak Park in the shopping mall at Greenfield and Lincoln

(10 ½ Mile).  It is one of the few independent bookstores left in the Detroit area.  

The owner has agreed to offer Jon’s books to our students at a special price.  

The prices listed below reflect a 20% discount + tax.

Students purchasing books can have Jon sign them at school.  

Book orders must be returned to school no later than Friday, May 17th.

Order forms must be complete and placed in an envelope with the correct amount of money.  The Book Beat will place the order from all four schools

on May 18th so please make sure the order form and money amount are correct and turned in on time.

For more of Jon’s books please join us at the Book Beat on Sunday, June 9th.

Copy, paste, print and Cut here and return to school completed.  If you do not have a printer, please write the information on a piece of paper and include it in the envelope with the cash.  Thanks!
