Posted: November 6th, 2013


TALL TALE BINGO – Lake Superior State University students enrolled in an elementary language arts/literacy skills course run an educational Tall Tales bingo game at the Superior Children's Book Festival, held Nov. 2 at LSSU. The game table was part of a semester-long service-learning project. Left to right is Luke Barry (as Paul Bunyan), and Cassandra Bruni; seated left to right is Arielle Kammers, Samuel Schlosser (also as Paul Bunyan), Candace Mangone, Brittany Brown, and, smiling from far right, their professor, Mary McMyne. The second annual festival attracted regional authors, illustrators, publishers, and vendors who shared all aspects of children's literature with other writers, would-be writers, as well as hundreds of families who dropped in for the all-day event.
