  • Author Jacqueline Davies visited Brick Mill Elementary School this week, along with other elementary schools in the Appoquinimink School District, where students are reading her book, "The Lemonade War," as part of the One School, One Book program.
    Davies talked to students about her books, her journey to becoming the author of children's books and what inspires her.
    Now in its third year in Appoquinimink, One School, One Book – originally created by the national cultural literacy nonprofit Read to Them – is part of a growing array of district programs designed to encourage students of all ages to read for fun at home.
    Each night, students at participating schools are given a certain number of pages to read at home with their families. The following day, they’ll be asked trivia questions about the assigned reading, with correct answers making them eligible for awards and prizes.
    This year's selection, "The Lemonade War," follows fourth-grader Evan Treski and his younger sister Jessie, whose epic tale of a sibling rivalry over who can sell the most lemonade includes introductions to business and marketing, math problems and a lesson in how arguments can get out of hand.
