New England

Bio: 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.

    As a fellow teacher, I would love it if you could share some of my books with your students. The children at our school tell me how much they enjoy them. ‘Kydee’ had lots of giggles from the 3 and 4 year olds. My dream is to see my books in the hands of more children around the world. I hope you can share 🙂 https://www.amazon.com/Dawn-Doig/e/B07BTPQJH7 Here are some reviews from our Grade 1 class:
