The students at the Colorado Oral Deaf Preschool experience The Hungry Caterpillar through storytelling and a variety of listening and language activities.
Lyra Repplinger is the mother of 3 wonderful children. She is inspired daily to document their childhood memories by writing adventures of their lives. In 2011, she became the preschool teacher at the Colorado Oral Deaf Preschool. This school feeds her passion of teaching young children with hearing loss to listen and use spoken language. This experience became yet another creative outlet for storytelling, language development, and memory making through published works.
