Remembering Caroline Feller Bauer
Last week I discovered that my "Poetry Break!" mentor, Caroline Feller Bauer passed away.
I first had the great pleasure of seeing her present a full-day literacy workshop. I was totally enthralled with EVERYTHING that she shared - storytelling, poetry, songs, puppets, props, and endless ideas for bringing books and reading to life! I saw Dr. Bauer's dynamic presentation a second time, devoured her books, wrote letters to her (she responded to each of my letters!), and began to try MANY of her literacy-loving ideas!
Over the years I have continuously referred to Dr. Bauer's jammed-packed resources. I lovingly read and reread her books over and over again.

Here is one of my first posts where I share a video clip that features one of my favorite poetry resources, Bauer's Poetry Break Book!
