Lenore Skenazy (pictured) wrote a lovely column this week about Broadway Books First Class for the newspaper Chelsea Now.
The article entitled His 'First Class' Idea: Bring Broadway to School is a fancy schmancy, bring-a-smile-to-my-face, piece that covers what transpired in our classroom during Gregory Jbara's visit.
Lenore captures a child's perspective on adult themes - I refer to this as poetic language in children - when a student refers to a graveyard as "the deadness". Appropriate imagery with All Hallows' Eve just around the corner.
She deftly manages connections (between people, between time, and between situations) throughout the piece. It is deeply gratifying to have Lenore's perspective and support on this new project.
