was he going to live in a Coop?


“Pam has such a wonderful way with children that she instantly reaches every child that she meets and you could feel the children’s joy in being part of the program. I would highly recommend Pam... Her love of children and her love of books for children truly show...”

Not only is the book fabulous, and the kids engaged, I was absolutely delighted watching [Pam] in action with the kids; [she is] so great with them, directing and redirecting their energy in such fun and positive ways. I learned a lot! Yes, we’d love to have [her] back.

In addition to being a great children’s book author, [Pam] is animated in her storytelling, energetic, and engages well with children of all ages. Her creativity shows through in her well written books, relateable books and in the follow-up craft, themed to her book Max and Bear.
