“There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate.” ~Charles Dickens

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.

    Chocolate (and a friend’s blog) are always great gifts to share! This was a very nice post, Jennie.

  3. Haha amen. Well said!!

    I had never imagined Dickens liking chocolate, so this was doubly enjoyable.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Love the quote and I hate to disappoint but it wasn’t Dickens. Research by someone on Wikipedia says it’s from a merchandising site called The Printwick Papers. https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Talk:Charles_Dickens!

    I couldn’t agree more! Dickens knew the secret of life 🙂

  7. I am a friend to anyone who has chocolate….just kidding. It depends on if they learned to share as children. This post is so cute and funny! Dickens knew how to laugh! KD 🙂

  8. Once again, Charles Dickens was ahead of his time!
