 On November 1, 2019 I was invited to Fort Wayne Community School’s Northcrest Elementary School to visit Mr. Brown’s and Mrs. Colbert’s fourth-grade class.  

Some Very Attentive Children

  The students were so attentive and interested in Mama Joe’s Kitchen.    Before writing these books I could never have imagined being the beneficiary of such special rewards!    


Exploring

  The children got to explore some of the things that were talked about in the book including an old measuring cup, an apron, a collapsible drinking cup, and a game called jacks.   After reading the book, Mr. Brown expertly guided the classes through the lessons and information contained in the story.
