Thank you to Sally for sharing this blog post on a wonderful children’s book. It takes the classic fairy tale of Humpty Dumpty, and looks at what happened next. That ‘next’ is a story of Humpty’s mending and resilience. It’s a tale that needs to be told. Today’s children need to hear this.
I will be posting some of the best new children’s books over the next few weeks.
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.

Good post. Sally is wonderful!
Yes, she is! Thank you, Jacqui.
Thanks Jacqui xx
I’ve been discussing Humpty Dumpty with my kindergarteners all this week 😃
Wonderful! This book will help with talking about fear and bravery. Kids need to talk about their worries.
Thanks for boosting the post Jennie and for permitting me to share..♥
My pleasure, Sally!

Thank you, Liz!
You’re welcome, Jennie!
A great share 🙂 x
Great post! I commented on Sally’s blog, too, but I’ll repeat it here>
What a terrific book! Stories like this are the reason I write fairy tales. I’ve never understood why some think they’re something you outgrow. When done properly, they’re highly relevant, IMO. : )
And now I have a new book to buy…
Hear, hear! Thank you, Cathleen.
