About Our Company

I was a Spanish substitute teacher for several years. Since then I've focused my efforts on materials to enrich early learning. I've been writing, illustrating, and presenting, books, games, hands-on activities, and more for children and educators for many years. It is a passion. Every child deserves an excellent start as they begin this amazing journey we call "life." From age 0 to 5 children are capable of mimicking, absorbing, learning astonishing things, concepts, theories, languages. This is where we can all make the greatest difference for every child, therefore I create for them! Many of my books were published by Monday Morning Books, Inc. Good Apple, Inc., Frank Schaffer, Scholastic Teacher Book Clubs, and more. I am now venturing into the world of publishing, specifically early childhood materials to continue creating for those who will be making the decisions for all of us tomorrow.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Too much to tell all at once so I will bullet a list. • Love to sew • Love to write • Have been creating hands-on activities since early childhood • Love my family and I AM YELLOW-GOLD SUN I am yellow-gold sun sliding down the horizon over Riverside Park; a wrought iron cage interrupted by stairs cascading down the blonde brick of a pre-WWI apartment building, the deep round echo of harbor horns rolling on the silver and gold laced Hudson towards Ulysses's alma mater, West Point. I am the swish of rollers and the scratch of a broom stick on the pavement during a street shuffle board game; the winning weighted metal sound sliding across the sidewalk at the end-of-summer sculley tournament, and the whaling on every corner not understanding "Oh my God, the President's been shot!" I am the aroma of arroz con gandules; a cobalt blue, mosaic-framed doorway wafting fresh pizza, and a "dirty dog" in a stainless steel bath under a yellow umbrella. I am roasted chestnuts veiling the entrance into Macy's on Herald Square; custard ice cream that lures children from their mother's grip in the subway, and the ketchup on a knish. I am pixie, heggies, and butterfingers; groovy, cool, beatnik, and hippie. I am Miss Mary Mack and Georgie Porgie puddin' and pie; hood, hip, square, wipe out, and what's up. I am mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa, far out, funky, fuzz, and gimme some skin. I am a life lesson learned when caught by a Woolworth's security guard with Roundy Rachel, while pocketing a plastic toy watch; the swoosh drawings of Motown singers on paper that spilled from Myra's left hand; and the finger-tapped kiss onto Sheryl's mezuzah before we snuck into the synagogue. I am lonely, rugged blue jeans with turned-up cuffs carefully dodging cracks (not to break my mother's back) always moving towards the yellow-gold sun sliding down the horizon over Riverside Park searching for a smile to call friend. --© mgbarr
