Today’s Quote

How fortuitous to wake up to this wonderful quote this morning, after learning of the passing of Eric Carle yesterday.

Soul Gatherings

The great man is he who does not lose his child’s heart.

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty-five 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 was a live guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. I am highlighted in the seventh edition of Jim Trelease's million-copy bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital, and the Massachusetts State House in Boston.

    Beautiful quote. It inspires me. Anything you see from a child’s perspective it becomes a lot more easier to understand.

    • Jennie says:

      I knew this would ‘fill you up’ the way it did me. How uncanny that I would read this quote right after his death. Meant to be. Thank you, Will.

  3. Love it… Thanks for sharing, Jennie!

    In all aspects literally, read something like having a child’s mentality in approaching self, when dealing with mental health

    A sad loss to the literary world and a fitting quote…

  11. Love the quote Jennie but a tad sexist. Women feel just the same way.

  12. Didn’t know he died. What a loss for children and adults.

  13. A great quote. As i remembering, Carle always had said, in his heart he always was a child. What better one can say. Michael

  14. Bruce Lee was not only good at martial arts, but also dancing. In 1958, he was named the Crown Colony Cha Cha dance champion of Hong Kong. (Hong Wrong).
