30 September ~2017

I began my 11th school year of storytelling in Jeffco and Denver classrooms by telling from one of my all time favorites - Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O Dell, a Newberry Award Winner in 1961. This is an amazing story of survival, loss, and the life-changing companionship of a dog friend. This one is especially easy and satisfying for me to tell, because of my own relations to animals for most of my life.

Below are some photos of the border collies and I hiking and backpacking this summer.
