Fatty Legs: A True Story

Really grateful for the opportunity to hear Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margaret Pokiak-Fenton talk about their important work today.  Their story impacted me greatly when I first read it in 2010 and it continues to impact me today.  Read it!

The Book of Mistakes by Corinna Luyken

20171011_085212We loved this book at Cayley School!  This winsome illustrations and simple lyrical text communicated beautifully all the wonderful potential that might unfold all because of a ‘mistake’!

Great read aloud

Some books beg to be read twice. Once to get the gist of it. Twice so one can  savour all the good parts. I’m reading a book like that now. Are you?


bookstore-482970_960_720After city shopping  (an activity that always leaves me feeling harried and discombobulated) how lovely to land in a bookstore and to disappear for a bit into the rich and varied land of so many lovely adventure, how to, what happened when, and that’s how it used to be books.  Even thirty minutes is enough to refresh one entirely. Blessed.
