Countdown to Launch Date



The countdown is on! Seven days until The Parent Backpack for Kindergarten through Grade 5 is released. The books have shipped . . . and mine just arrived.

I still have to pinch myself when I think that I’ll be a published author next week. It’s been an amazing journey and I have so many people to thank for helping me get to this point. And, I’ll start with you. Thank you for following this blog and passing it on to those you know who may benefit from it. I started this endeavor specifically for parents like us. Parents who had questions and weren’t always sure where to get the answers.

So, if you’ve ever asked yourself . . .

- What should my kids be learning when?

- How do we talk to the teacher about this?

- How do they figure out classroom placement?

- What do we do if we think he needs more challenge?

- How do I know if she’s ready for Kindergarten?

- What can we do at home to support him?

- Should we go to the principal?

. . . you’ll find the answers — to these questions and many more — in The Parent Backpack. It’s available in paperback or e-book and you can pre-order right here guaranteed to arrive by July 23rd.
