Pendergast School-District Kindergarten Event

Michelle and Sean were recently at the “Welcome to Kindergarten” for the Pendergast School District in Avondale, Arizona. 100 lucky families received a free copy of the DADDYTELLER book from Sean. PESD uses a bee as a mascot (“We BEE-lieve in You!”)…so Sean captured the moment in a photo. Thanks for hosting us, good PESD folks!

Fairytales Teach…..Part Two

Are fairytales any good any more for modern audiences, for kids, for schools, for life? The fairytale has taken somewhat of a beating of late. Thought to be too “this” or “that,” it’s easy to miss the teachable moments in the middle of trying to seek balance in these older stories…or the new ones being made. Here are a few of our thoughts. This is the second posting in the series. You can see the first post at this link now. Part Three is linked at the bottom of this post. The illustrations in this collection are from our “Apples for the Princess” kid’s book. Please feel free to Pin or Book or Tweet or link to us on social media. More thoughts after the pictures…

It’s important, we think, that we understand that nothing children (especially) encounter is done in a vacuum of experience. As parents, we need to actively engage in all media from ancient tales to modern phone screens. What is your child seeing? All media can be used to teach, even the moments that you think the child “isn’t ready for.” Engage. Look at your kids. Tell them fairytalesor read them. 🙂 .

If you found this series of posts to be helpful, we hope you’ll consider picking up an affordable copy of Michelle’s book in paperback or Kindle. Thank you.
