The Goodbye Cancer Garden Goes to School
In December I made my third annual trip to the 3rd graders of The Oaks Academy in Indianapolis to complement their curriculum on fables. We sang, dreamed of what we'd like to be when we grow up, and read and discussed my fable, "No Ducks for Dinner," from the March 2010 issue of Spider magazine.
And just this week I spent the morning with kindergartners from the Indiana Math and Science Academy, also here in Indy. They selected Peter, the Knight with Asthma for story time--seems several have personal experience with that nasty asthma dragon. And not only did they sing with me about how books help us become what we want to be, but they also sent me off with two songs they'd prepared just for me! Nice job, friends.
