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

                             Marcus Tullius Cicero

                                            Stephen King



“We live for books.”

                                             Umberto Eco


“Books are the food and drink for the human soul.”

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.

    I always bring a book with me. I can read on the bus, waiting room or other places where you need to wait for something.

    Charles always find the good ones.
    Julie bought me a hardback book yesterday, an autobiography. It was good to hold that heavy book in my hands, to turn the pages and look at the photos inside. After a long time using a Kindle Reader, it felt right.
    Best wishes, Pete.
