Mildred Kantrowitz, may she not be forgotten. A child brought the book Willie Bear into school a few weeks ago. It was a book that all of the children could connect with in Kindergarten. Willie Bear doesn’t get ready for school in time so the boy in the book goes ahead to school without him. . assuring Willie Bear that he will get to know the teacher and all the new friends so Willie Bear doesn’t have to worry.
I had never read this book before but them magically discovered that I already loved this Author Mildred Kantrowitz – She also wrote When Violet Died – a relevant book about a bird dying and the kids have a funeral. These classic books should be part of the Kindergarten library. Warm hearted, real, and tender.
