The Register Publications Newspaper in Education program is offering serial stories again this year for kids of all ages.
Starting next week, Tuesday, Sept. 18, the first chapter of The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen will appear in The Journal-Press.
The 11-chapter story will run in installments through December.
It will take a two-week break in October to accomodate for the two-week fall breaks at South Dearborn and Lawrenceburg schools.
Enjoy comparing and contrasting the original tale with the modern story.
The story will run Tuesday, Sept. 18 and 25; Oct. 2, 23, and 30, and Nov. 6, 13, 20, and 27, and Dec. 4 and 11.
A second story also will begin next week in The Dearborn County Register.
The Ghost in the Courthouse Statue, written by Bill Bailey and illustrated by Michelle Duckworth, is being sponsored by the Newspaper Association of America.
In this 16-chapter story, young Donnie Hutch and his puppet, Humpty, embark on a tumultuous journey of discovery.
Join Donnie and Humpty as their daily adventures have them meeting a ghost, helping the town newspaper and exposing the crooked deeds of local law officers.
A teacher’s guide is available for this story and will be posted at www.thedcregister.com in the NIE section.
The story will run Thursdays in The Dearborn County Register Sept. 20, 27; Oct. 4, 25; Nov. 1, 8, 15, 29; Jan. 10, 17, 24, 31 and Feb. 7, 14, 21, 28.
