five-minutes-peaceI’m not sure who loves this book more; me or my kids! However I am certain every mom will identify with Mrs. Large, a mother of three young children. All she wants is a five minutes break to relax and catch her breath. Sounds simple, right? Wrong! The detailed illustrations and humorous elephant children make this a delightful tale. You AND your children will enjoy this tale.

When I started teaching, I quickly realized that student teaching didn't prepare me for the real challenges of being alone in a classroom full of young children. The learning curve was steep and time was limited. That is why I created the Literacy Garden. My hope is this will be a place for inspiration, mentoring, and connecting.
