"Bugs in My Tummy!" book signing by Marcia Allen - Sat. Dec 16, 1-3pm

Marcia Allen, a life-long resident of Berrien County raised her daughter, Lisa by answering her endless questions of "why." One day, Lisa asked why her tummy hurt & mom said, "you must have a bug." That was the beginning of many more questions and stories of what type of bugs and assurances that the bugs were friendly. Throughout her childhood the stories continued and the doctors were consulted to determine their colors and what the bugs were doing. When Lisa was about nine, she wrote a story about her bugs for an assignment in her "Young Author" class. Many years later, Lisa graduated from Western Michigan University and moved to Chicago. Her mom surprised her by making a little scrapbook of her bug story when she discovered it among her grade school papers. Lisa began going to some of the Chicago elementary schools and sharing her bug story with students and that is when we decided to print "Bugs in My Tummy" to share with other children. We hope you enjoy!
