    BOUSD elementary students, grades 3rd-6th, you can apply to be featured as kid characters in Brea’s 1st children’s book showcasing the city’s iconic Charlie’s Clock aka Charlie the Clock in time travel with friends - - celebrating Brea's centennial year in 2017.

      I have received parental consent for Valeria Zavala, a former student of Laurel Elementary, who made history as the first Brea student, awarded California National History Day Champion in 2015. Five more students are needed: one from Arovista, Country Hills, William E. Fanning, Mariposa and Olinda elementary.

          Overseeing the project based on my concept, the author of the book is Teresa Hampson, known for her history book, Brea: Celebrating 75 years, and 2006 BOHS grad and recent CSUF grad, Heather Ashlyn Collins, who drew Charlie the Clock caricature, is the book's Illustrator.

            I’m looking for kids who excel at academics and are interested in Brea history!

              The deadline has been set for Friday, January 6, 2017.

                If you are interested, I'll need your child's name, name of school, grade level, and academic interests.

                  No doubt, it's going to be a very hard decision. Parents will be notified either way. More to come on Charlie the Clock group photo book op and sub-project opportunities for BOUSD kids, grades 3rd - 6th.

                    Please send your information via private message on Brea Old and New Facebook/Instagram or news@breaoldandnew.com. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

                      I look forward to hearing from you!

                        Thank you!
