    I met this author at First Friday in Lancaster, on 4th of July 2014. He was friendly, nice, and very encouraging to talk to. I mentioned that I have been teaching preschool for 3 years. He summarized his newest book Spunkky and Dunky and Buddy Bear, and taught me ways in which I can relate the story to my students and how literacy is an excellent way to approach topics that may otherwise be difficult to discuss with young children. Important lessons relating to character development, compassion, and other emotions are embedded in the story so the children can experience the topics in a developmentally appropriate way. I really look forward to saving up money to buy this book to incorporate into my classroom!
