Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

So Proud!

20130719-170541.jpgThe five participants in this week’s Young Authors Workshop at Firefly Moon in Arlington MA made me ultra proud today. These children worked very hard for three hours each day and produced some of the best writing I’ve ever seen. I enjoyed getting to know them and help them hone their writing skills. We ended a wonderful week by holding an Author Reading in the store for parents and relatives.

Below Annika is sharing her Paint Chip Storytelling piece. One color on the chip was peppergrass and this is the picture of it.

It was a great week and I’m looking forward to meeting a new group of Young Authors at Firefly Moon on July 29th. I’d like to thank Jim & Stephanie Donovan, owners of Firefly Moon, for hosting us and providing such a beautiful space to study our writing.

For more information on Young Authors Workshops for children in grades K-5 please visit the iTeach website.

And so, as another day goes by, I return to the Cape happy and satisfied after a week of doing what I love, I’m blessed that I get to teach once more, and…I have written.
