My friend, Hayden, and his teacher, Mrs. Lemon, invited me to share my story with his kindergarten class. The fun didn’t stop with Hayden’s class as I read to the other three kindergarten classes, too!
After I completed my story time activities with the fourth class, and I asked if there were any questions. A little girl raised her hand and asked, “Will you read it to us again? I looked over at the teacher, and she nodded “yes”. This time, the children all chimed in enthusiastically to say what would happen if you don’t take a bath! Compliments come in many ways, but for this story-teller asking for “Again, please” warms my heart! April 20, 2018

You make me so proud Sally….from a second grade teacher we adored in Sheridan WY and now you are a proud grandmother and author…we LOVE YOU>
I enjoyed watching the kids in Wimberley, Texas at the Village Library listening and learning from Sally reading her fantastic and funny book. She is a wonderful writer and her enthusiasm for teaching children is infectious. Bravo Sally!!!
