Fragment of the Day – The Love of Books

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.

    Books hold magic and transportation away from lives and once back to our homes, we may become more interesting, informed and motivated! Wonderful reblog, thanks for sharing, Jennie!

    • Jennie says:

      Thanks, Robin. You said that so beautifully! πŸ™‚. Just perfect πŸ‘Œ.

      • reocochran says:

        I appreciate your warm reception. Sometimes, I feel a little bit “corny.” Thanks, Jennie. You’re an angel.

      • Jennie says:

        You’re not corny at all. πŸ™‚

      • reocochran says:

        Thanks for your vote of confidence!We may be a little corny as all preschool teachers are wired to be silly. πŸ™ƒ
        It wasn’t meant to sound self-deprecating, nor when I mention “all” teachers of little ones is it meant to be a negative aspect. . .

      • Jennie says:

        I know exactly what you mean. We’re on the same wave length. Now, that’s a phrase from the past that just popped out of my head! Corny is a good thing. πŸ™‚

  3. I love those quotes, they are so true and I hope resonate to those you haven’t read a good book in lately. Wonderful reblog, Jennie! K D πŸ™‚
