Extra! Extra! Read all about it; what an incredible day Tuesday, June 1st was. And just when I wasn’t sure it could get more exciting, the celebration continued with this beautiful post on the front page of the Friendswood Reporter News. Can you hear the clanging cadence of Mr. Quigley’s Keys?
We had such a fun launch Tuesday evening; I’m so grateful that first-grade Friendswood teacher Jennifer Quigley, whose daddy inspired our story, could jump on for a bit and bring that beautiful affective side of empathy to our story, and that Dr. Michele Borba, my empathy hero, and Toni Mullins, my friend of Teacher Toni fame, could also add their impressions of the book during the launch!
After reading my book aloud the a great group of fourth graders in Houston last week, I received some insightful notes; aren’t these the best reflections?
We’ve had a few publishing delays, so if you’ve ordered the book, thank you and hold tight; Mr. Quigley’s Keys will be jingling your way very soon, hopefully in time for Father’s Day.
