I was a young mother, classroom volunteer & teachers' aide (among other things) when my husband found a book he thought I'd like. After my daughter was in bed I started through the book. It made me smile, sigh, laugh & I was in love. I shared Where the Sidewalk Ends (25th Anniversary Edition Book & CD) with the teachers and librarians I worked with. Poetry readings and sing-alongs were organized and laughed through. Kids, teachers, parents were all having fun.
