|In ConnieMom’s own words: “I hope this project stimulates other teachers to bring creativity and critical thinking skills into the classroom. May my student’s Children’s Book Project be loved and enjoyed by all! Hopefully parents and grandparents alike will use this series of books to read to their “little ones” and draw them into the world of stories and story-telling while bonding generations together."|
