LEARNING, LOVE, PLAY, AND LAUGHTER
What a warm, wonderful, and creative book that combines learning, love, play, and laughter. One reason the human species has so excelled intellectually is that there's a place in our mind where love and laughter, play and learning all seem to intersect. Mollie Abraham's EduFables is a book written from that lovely locale. Buy the book and visit it with a favorite child
"My favorite fable is, "It's Hunky Dory in the Magic Quami Forest". I liked going 2 lefts and 3 rights and all the other combinations through the forest. The story was fun to read and it was also fun to look at the pictures. There was lots of math we had to figure out, like how many gold bars each kid got. I really wanted the kids to win enough gold to go to college. I loved playing the Quami forest Game against my brother, Andy." Sabrina M. 11 yrs. old, 6th grade, Dedham, MA.
"I really liked the story about Queen Righty and King Lefty, and playing the forest game with my sister. I even brought EduFables to school. Miss Nihill, my second grade teacher at the Oakdale Elementary School, asked me to read one of the fables to the class. After I read the Hunky Dory story, the whole class clapped loudly because they liked it so much!! But my favorite story was about Willie Orbit and Yul Neverwin because it was so interesting and so surprising. Actually, I loved all the stories and the color cartoons on the cover." Andy M. 8 yrs. old, 3rd grade, Dedham, MA.
