Blog Award

One Lovely Blog Award


I have been nominated for this award by Charles French at  Thank you very much for this honor, Charles.  If you have not yet visited his blog, please do so.  He is an English Professor and an excellent writer.  It takes a great person to write with wisdom and heart.  Charles French does just that.

The Rules:

*Thank the person who nominated you, and give a link to his/her blog.

*List the rules.

*Display  the image of the award on your post.

*List seven facts about yourself.

*Nominate (up to) 15 bloggers for this award, and notify them to let them know you have nominated them.

Seven Facts About Me:

1). I was born and raised in the south, yet have lived in New England for over 30 years.  I like to think that my southern hospitality and kindness combined with my newfound Yankee common sense about life has defined my character.

2). I was rarely read to as a child, which I find interesting since my biggest ‘shout-out’ to the world is the enormous difference reading aloud makes.

3). I have a terrific husband, two wonderful grown children (each on a different coast) and five wonderful grandchildren.

4). I love cookies, and I hate to cook.

5). I really play with and pay attention to my preschoolers.  Really.  It matters.

6). I wake up early and read, and do my ‘best’ writing at night.

7). I am a huge fan of YA books.  I have my stack ready to read this summer.

My Nominees:

Again, my thanks to Charles French at


About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    Thank you ever so much, Jennie! ❤ You are most kind to include me in this list. It has been ages since I have received an award nomination so thank you very much!
    It may take me a week, since I have a post about musical movies coming out on June 13th on Cindy Bruchman's blog. I am hoping to re-blog it so everyone can read hers and my reviews! I chose "Chorus Line," "Rent," and "Mamma Mia!" to critique.

  4. Congratulations, Jennie! Well deserved. And what a surprise to find my name (tiny typo) on the list, thank you!

      Oh, no!! A typo? That is terrible? And, I am so sorry. Please tell me what it is so I can edit the post. I want people to be able to click onto your blog, as you write One Lovely Blog. 🙂

  5. Congrats on the award! And sorry for the delay in responding; found your pingback in my spam folder this morning. Thanks very much for the nomination.
