About Me
A retired teacher who taught at home as well as in an international school--used picture books instead of basal readers to teach my Ks and 1st graders how to read and now enjoy doing the same with grandchildren. I have annotated multi- cultural picture books for the US Board on Books for Young People and also taught ESL to multi generational immigrant families. I also volunteer in my grandchildren's elementary school library. I love to read and follow the Newbery and Caldecott Medal and Honor books each year as well as having a love for British historical fiction and British mysteries. I support my local independent book seller but also have an account at Barnes&Noble; also shop many consignment and used books stores for literary treasures.
