There are many reasons I love instagram, but when you find one of your favorite children's authors through a literacy followers your heart explodes with joy. Maria Dismondy is one of my favorite children's authors of all times. Why you ask? She writes books about celebrating being kind and being yourself. One of my main goals in my classroom is encourage students to always been kind and celebrate the differences in their classmates.
I reached out to Maria asking about her new book Chocolate Milk Por Favor!, she was gracious and offered to send me a copy. When the book came in the mail, I ripped up the package to find a sweet book that had been autographed.
If you buy this book or any of her other gems on Amazon, leave a rating! Like Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun. Clearly, I am a fan because I shared that book this year too to teach character education.
