Marcia Thornton Jones in Natcher Elementary SchoolAuthor Marcia Thornton Jones visited schools in Bowling Green March 6 and 7. Her Champ is selected for this year’s “On the Same Page.” Champ is a book about a boy and a dog who set out to prove to the boy’s father and the whole town that there is more than one way to be a winner. In the story, Riley is awful at sports and wants to quit. Champ is the three-legged dog that learns to perform as a show dog. Both learn that giving up is not an option.

Marcia Thornton Jones is the author of more than 120 books including the well-known Bailey School Kids series. She is a former elementary school teacher and lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband and two cats.

On the Same Page is the community wide reading project for younger children. It’s a partnership project of WKU Libraries, Bowling Green Public Library, and Barnes and Noble Booksellers.
