About the Book
In the first book in the 3 set series, Henley the Hedgehog, falls into a large hole in the little backyard he lives in. After falling in the hole Henley ends up with his head stuck in a discarded tube. Fortunately, he soon he meets a helpful woodlouse and a wise earthworm.
As educator since 1988, I am always looking for innovative ways to make my programs more interesting for my students. Writing stories with Henley the Hedgehog as the main character is something I created to bring to life a character. My students enjoy reading about Henley and spending time with him on his school visits! My classroom management guide serves to help new teachers with techniques to assist them as they navigate their way through those first few month and years. My latest project is a reading recovery guide for a program I developed many years ago and wanted to share with teachers everywhere. It is a straight forward guide for educators and parents and explains how to teach their struggling readers to decode. I have compiled significant data to show the quick improvement of any child who does this program and believe in it wholeheartedly. I live in Toronto, Ontario with my husband Nick, my hedgehog friend Henley and our fabulous stray/adopted cat Stella.
