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.
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.
sounds like it will be a great read!
I think it will!
I’m sure you’ll find Amanda in France as enjoyable as I did!
Thank you, Liz! My favorite is in Holland, and I think this one will match that. Have you read other Amanda books?
You’re welcome, Jennie. Amanda in France is the first one I’ve read.
I just heard about this book on Rebecca Budd’s Author’s reading their books podcast, It sounds wonderful.
I think it will be! Rebecca’s podcasts are really good, an I’m glad she featured Darlene.
Sounds great, Jennie.
Woot for Darlene! And you!
Thank you, Jacqui!
Well done to Darlene for another book in the Amanda series, and I have no doubt you will enjoy it, Jennie.
Best wishes, Pete.
Yes, well done to Darlene. I’m sure I’ll enjoy the book. Best to you, Pete.
That’s wonderful, Jennie. I started reading mine today too, but mine’s on my Kindle.
ENJOY! I’m sure it will meet your expectations!
😎 I’m in the middle of reading Amanda in Malta.
Have you read others? My favorite is Holland.
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.
I’m like a small child when I get a book I’ve been waiting for. There are three that don’t come out until October and I am on pins and needles waiting.
I know exactly how you feel!
Congratulations to Darlene! Happy reading, Jennie… Must share!
Thank you, Bette! 😍
Fabulous, Jennie. My book arrived recently too.
I’m glad you have the book, too!
I just heard about this book recently as well, Jennie. I hope it exceeds your expectations. Enjoy!
Thanks, Bruce. I think it will! 🙂
So pleased if arrived. Enjoy France with Amanda. I’m in Canada right now promoting the book. XO
Hi Darlene! I know I will. Best to you.
Jennie, that is wonderful!
Thank you, Charles!
