“Hey kids, Who Would Win—a killer whale or a great white shark? A hippo or a rhino?” Prolific children’s author Jerry Pallotta from Boston is wildly popular among youngsters for his “Who Would Win?” series of animal books. Readers get a big dose of non-fiction scientific information on creatures large and small, right down to a bee vs. a wasp. Pallotta spent Friday morning, April 6, 2016, with young authors in the L’Anse school, and then moved over to Baraga for the afternoon, meeting with groups of elementary- aged students. Baraga second grade teacher Desiree Lauritsen knows just how popular Pallotta’s books are with youngsters. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
