    Wow, Heather, thanks bunches. You are so right; we can’t do it alone. The writing may start in the attic, but in short order, we (and most writers) are at that communal table, turning to a few key people for those essential perceptions of the all-important Reader.

  3. Heather – Oh what a fun introduction to your PowerFinger cohorts and for sharing their books as well. Write on!

  4. I have your book – got it just a few days ago. It’s a book I want to give to family, friends, and schools. And I’m only half way through it. Thank you for writing it!

    • Heather Shumaker says:

      Julie – Hmm…I will have to put that question out to readers. Thanks to readers, I now know of some fantastic play-based preschools in Iowa, Connecticut, California, Ohio, etc. Let’s see what we can find out.
