I love books, especially children’s book. Even as an adult I always gravitate towards the children’s section of Barnes & Noble. Books, much like my family’s childhood road trips, were my window on the world. What an amazing package. Low cost to entry but contained within these little treasure chests are stories that not only spark the imagination but can teach history, science and significant lessons, potentially forging the direction of a child’s future.
As an educator and someone who has spent the vast majority of my communications career in education, I know many of the challenges facing America’s children. And conversely I see the world of possibility that education can unlock. Sprinkle that with life challenges that no one should ever have to encounter and I have stories to tell. In-fact the subject of my Master’s Thesis was an ambitious project based on the story of a curly-headed young girl interested in STEM.
But in the beginning…there was Mike the Pug.
