(HONESDALE, PA, June 7, 2007)—A monkey was loose in the museum! At least it was in Rachel Iatarola’s book “A Very Tricky Monkey.” Rachel, a student from Julie Pierson’s 6th grade English class, read her original book to David Hoff, CEO of Wayne Memorial Hospital. “I’m impressed by not only how well you write and read, but how good the pictures are,” said Hoff as he listened to each of the young authors read their stories. This is the twelfth year students from Wallenpaupack Middle School have written, illustrated, printed and constructed books to donate to the Hospital’s Pediatric Unit. The books will be available to children and parents to read during a stay in the hospital. “We appreciate your effort to produce all these books,” continued Hoff. “Our children really appreciate them.” Pictured seated: Rachel Iatarola; Samantha Pallay, “The Farmer’s Farm”; Michael Mussmann, “The Magic Bean”; standing: David Hoff; Shaun Slutter, “The Dragon with No House”; Cody Vitz, “Fish that Like Bubbles”; Gabrielle Corvest, “Babies and Button”; Julie Pierson.
