Hi all! Corin Zaragoza Estrera, Durham, NC
Francie, your first children's book is incredible and has meant so much to so many people-- do you have plans to write another children's book?
How do you suggest to use this book in an elementary classroom?
Have you studied art Francie? Your descriptions which you wrote before Ken Daley read them show that you have a fine appreciation of the nuances of color. A shout out to you - I met you at the Library of Congress!
Hi Francie. Thank you for writing such a beautiful book. I can't wait to share this with my 3rd grade social studies students. I teach Louisiana history here in New Orleans. There's a strong Haitian influence and connection locally. Do you have any ideas or other tips for bringing Haitian culture to life for young students in New Orleans?
Do you have any recommendations for books/literature about Haitian life or the Haitian experience that would be appropriate for high school students? My high school students still LOVE children's books and I am excited to share this book with them but I'm wondering if there is more I can show them.
