I couldn’t go to their schools.
I couldn’t drink from their water fountains.
There were so many things I couldn’t do.
- I love stories that inspire children to become doers as well as dreamers.
- I love books that bring history alive for young readers.
- I love illustrations that capture our attention…and our hearts.
- I love when the partnership of author and illustrator works as it does so beautifully in this book.
- No doubt about it…this is a 5-STAR picture book…don’t miss it!

Martin Luther King Day may have passed, but it’s never to late to celebrate diversity. Kids will love tracing their hand prints. For a classroom, why not have kids trace as many hand prints as there are kids and decorate them. Then kids can trade, so each child has a wreath made from hand prints of the entire class.
Thank you all for stopping by…I appreciate your time and your company! I’ve been less active on social media because I’ve been writing and revising…but I’ve been keeping up with STORYSTORM. Each day, another author shares how they get ideas for stories. My notebook is filling up and I’m so excited about that. I’m also excited because on January 25th, it will be my turn to share my thoughts with everyone. I hope you’ll all stop by Tara’s blog to say hello!
