“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”

                                                                  Marcus Tullius Cicero



“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”

                                                                 Jorge Luis Borges



“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”

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.

    Always had a couple of books in my tool bag. As much as I love real books I found my Ereader is a good way to build a good collection at a price I can afford and I never run out of books to read.

    ““A room without books is like a body without a soul.” I couldn’t agree more! I also always have a book on me for any idle moments in life – although there’s the odd time that I will find myself in these moments and think, “Ughhh, why did I forgot my book!??!”

  10. I cannot imagine a room (or home) without books -ever.

  11. All great quotes! I used to carry a book of poetry with me, but I have not done that in a long time. I should remedy that! 😀
