Nothing lasts forever. . . but for now you have me and I have you!!!13 June 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
My all time favorite book in the forty-two years of teaching. I used this book to teach writing craft: imagery, magic three, alliteration, simile, metaphors and so much more. . . even used it for math and cooperative learning activities. . . and social studies for friendship and family relations.Thank you Sara Kilborne!!!

Peach and Blue16 February 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
I am teaching my class all about friendship and this book was the perfect reading. I also gave a copy to my husband as a Valentine gift. A reminder of how we all need a little of Peach and Blue in our lives. A very enduring book

Love this one17 September 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
This is quite possibly my favorite kids book. I used to do a reading followed by craft class and I used this for it. I also took it to be the secret reader for the boy I nanny. I've found that the kids to whom I've read it, enjoy the story and understand the message behind it.
