Gina, Queen of the Butterflies

I recently attended “Catch a Bunch of Authors” at Aurora Public Library. Very good presentations and lots of great books out there! I found a good book to read to preschoolers: Gina, Queen of the Butterflies, by Donna Mililli.A gentle learning story about a dear little girl who teaches her friends compassion through her love for butterflies. Great pictures, too.   You can find the book here.


Happy Rentrée

As the new school year gets underway, I can’t help but think of all the emotions the children are feeling.  Excitement to see their friends again.  Trepidation over new challenges.  Wondering if their teacher will like them.  All these and more.  I wish you all a good start and a wonderful new school year.  The French have a saying for that:  Bonne rentrée!  : )
