I love the concept of “pay it forward” and encourage a giving nature with my students and family. So… I decided to try another “pay it forward” with my first published book, Messy Jessy. Three teachers (to start) will each be given a copy of Messy Jessy to read with their class and respond to it. When finished, they will pass the book along with a set of instructions to another teacher who would like to use the book in their classroom.
Stay tuned! I can’t wait to see how they respond. Also, for every 10 classes that respond (not 10 responses per class) I will do a draw for my latest book, Messy Jessy Gets Active.
Note: My books are available on the Nova Scotia Book Bureau.
Here are a few responses I received from one group of students participating in “Pay it Forward With a Book”:
