As an early childhood educator, I was excited to share a lesson on friendship, through publishing my first children’s book Max and Molly (a story of friendship).  This realistic fiction book highlights the story of how my new puppy Molly entered our home to meet her older brother Max with an incredible sense of confidence and belonging.  Max was reluctant at first to share his family with Molly, however, he soon realizes her friendship makes his life even more special!  This book has taken me on an amazing unexpected journey of teaching writer’s workshops and read aloud lessons in local schools, libraries and communities as well as, collaborating with therapy service dog agencies to promote literacy to young children.  I’m so grateful for the many blessings this book has brought and taught me, and to my extraordinary pooches for their inspiration to write this book.
