Bears, kittens and Beatrice
Late fall is the time for visits and videoconferencing with picture books--a kindler, gentler universe than all the focus on bullying and its aftermath. But I am so grateful for all the good things that are happening with FOUR SECRETS. Make no mistake. Just nice to be talking about bears and tricksters and the far north with younger readers.

Presentations include:
Clever Beatrice
Clever Beatrice Christmas
3 Bears and Goldilocks
Thanksgiving With Me

Thanks for the cool T-shirt, Harrison Park Elementary School in Grand Rapids!
