My friend, Barbara, is a secretary at John S. Park Elementary School where I went as a little girl. When she invited me to read one of my books at Nevada Reading Week I immediately said yes. So Haley & I went to John S. Park on Monday where I read my book Juliana Cuddles to 2nd graders. Tomorrow I go back to read it the Kindergarten class. My little book includes reference to God. So I had a little trepidation about reading that part of the book because of the politically correct insanity that is taking over the school systems in America. But Barbara assured me it was OK. She said "anywhere tests are given you can be sure people are praying to God!" Very true.
My presentation included photos I had enlarged of all the characters in the book ~ which happen to be my real life animals (it's a true story made magical.) But the photo that brought the biggest "Ahhhhh....." from the children was the photo of my old dog Sammy in his blue tutu. I knew one of the children would raise their hand and ask if Sammy was a boy dog. Sure enough. The class thought it was funny for a boy dog to wear a tutu. I explained the concept of how Sammy spent years at my dance studio wearing that tutu. I think they got it! And they got the God part too. xoxo Amy
