Book Review: The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo #KateDiCamillo #UltimateReadingChallenge

Whenever someone asks me to recommend a book that is not a young children’s book, this is the one. THE ONE. I cannot tell you how many times people have found a scrap of paper or a napkin to write down the name of this book, because I was passionate, nearly frantic to tell them the book I loved the most. This review is terrific. Thank you, Mischenko.

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.
