I am blown away by the the breadth and depth of Pam’s educator’s guides for “This is Not a Normal Animal Book.” Crafting two guides (PreK-2 and 3-5) for teachers and librarians for my book required Pam to develop resources, activities, and recommendations in the areas of science, language arts, and social-emotional education — all of which connect the book to multiple aspects of the PreK – 5th grade curricula and standards. Pam’s expertise of academic standards and teachers’ needs across many disciplines, and her willingness to dig deep into the many layers of the book’s value in the classroom, is unique and extraordinary. Further, while a task of this nature has the potential to be stressful and exacting, Pam’s attitude was constantly positive and “can do,” and her kindness, generosity, and professionalism made her a pleasure to work with at every encounter. I can’t recommend her work more highly.
