At Last!

Look what arrived today!
I’ve been looking forward to owning and reading this book
for a long time.

Amanda is much like a modern day Nancy Drew.
The book series, by Darlene Foster,
takes Amanda all over the world.
History, adventure, and mystery abound.
Highly recommended!


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.

  9. Let us know how it goes. I have such a huge TBR pile already but love to read something gentle now and then. Yay for any new book.

      This is a short-ish book. Actually, you would love the series, Marlene. Amanda is much like you, and her adventures and travels are always the backdrop for solving a mystery.
