Author 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.

A spectacular article! Gosh you make me so proud, like my own family's done good. Well, my blog family anyway.

(e - I hope to have more to share as the program continues. Fingers crossed!

37 - I know that feeling. I share that when you post about your proud moments and accomplishments or when you beam about your children. It's nice to have these connections even if they are only via blogs. It still counts for something.
