It makes me giddy to think of all those copies out in the world finding readers who might be looking for just such a book.
When the time came to write a dedication for A Family is a Family is a Family, I realised I wasn't sure who it was for. Or rather, it was intended mainly for children I might not actually know. And so the original dedication went out to the grandchildren I hope to meet one day. But as the book went out and found its way in the world I came to feel that I had also written it because it matters to me that what I do matters to my children. And so I asked Groundwood if as a special favour to me we could update the dedication as the book went back to the printer. Which is why it now says this.
Groundwood has put together an educator's guide for the book. You can find it here.
The classroom poster is available for a printable download here. Plus a post on the Groundwood blog where I talk about my first classroom.
