This month, I’m hosting Day 3 of the Virtual Book Tours for all
the children’s book authors/illustrators who are part of the
October Showcase at the National Writing for Children Center.
Today, I’m pleased to be hosting Day 3 of the tour for author
The Tale of Miss Spider is a wonderful teaching tool for teachers in
the classroom. It will inspire and help Children listen to their own
soft, loving, and kind inner voices. Children can draw pictures
about their soft, kind, and loving voice, and about their angry and
loud voice. They can put these emotions on paper. By doing this
they will acknowledge the difference between these two voices.
The teachers can read Miss Spider, and then the Children can act
the story out as a play.
This way, they can really feel the difference between the two
voices, because acting the story out will bring the Children into
the reality of the two voices. They will also be able to feel how
different the voices are. They can discuss the story, and talk about
the loud and angry voice.
How can we hurt others and ourselves when we acknowledge the
loud and angry voice. Then they can talk about the soft and kind
loving voice, how we can make ourselves, and others happy when
we listen to this kind and loving voice. The teachers can ask the
Children to write a story about a loving and kind voice, and a
story about a loud and angry voice.
