This charming little girl (in the red shirt) began typing her story on the Old Manual, and was well on her way when her mother told her it was time to stop. I think a budding writer is about to blossom.

Sharing As Fast As Words Could Fly with the students at Creative Minds Montessori School
First things first . . . Many children have learned a lot about the Civil Rights Movement from their History books. . .but not everyone who took part in the movement had their names recorded. So, here's my opportunity to introduce my dad as ONE of those people. In sharing HIS STORY, the children realize that my dad's journey was also a part of HISTORY.
What a new "creature" this was to introduce . . . my manual typewriter featured in the book. The curiosity grew and the children enjoyed their "hands on" experience with HISTORY. They even got the chance to hear the "DING" on the typewriter.



I enjoyed my trip to the ALA Conference in Chicago, IL. I met a lot of wonderful people. I sold out of books and had to sign bookplates! What an exciting experience. The teachers and librarians truly make authors feel like royalty. I appreciate all their interest and support.
