Thank you Bridget for this wonderful George Bernard Shaw quote!

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

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.

  3. This is a lovely quote and so true, all we have to do is listen. Children learn so much from each other and I learn so much from them too! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  4. I love this and I have always believed in sharing and caring, especially this way. Also, I love apple pie and your apple pie looks delicious! In Connecticut, where I grew up in a farming community, we had an apple tree in our front yard and there were a several apple orchards in our community! It was wonderful and as kids, we never went hungry, our snacks were always apples! Karen 🙂

  5. Awesome quote, Jennie and Bridget. I love that. 🙂 I want a piece of that pie too.
