There’s never been a more chaotic and tenuous time in our nation’s educational story.

Learning is the most natural thing human beings do.  Yet, it seems the “harder” we work in schools helping our students to acquire the learning they need, the academic performances stay stagnant or lessen.

Schools are not machines. Schools are a network of human beings who feel, think, behave, and function within a human system that is alive and never static.  Schools are living systems!

This system is wired to thrive, even through difficult times — Lori and Michael believe that we can begin to create wholeness and connection within our schools mindfully and by design. We can create places where all children thrive.

Matilda: The Algonquin Cat Leslie Eddy

 
CHILDREN'S (and Adults who love this cat's story!)

ISBN: 978-1-942545-24-8
44 Pages, 8 x 10
$26.00 Hardcover
Pub Date: Summer 2016

Based on the actual (and celebrated) cat at the Algonquin Hotel in NYC, which has, in addition to its rich literary heritage, a long history of a “cat in residence,” this picture book is both funny and informative for children ages 4 through 10, and the adults who love the literary backstory.

In 1902 the elegant twelve-story Algonquin Hotel opened its doors and became the daily meeting place for talented young writers, editors, actors, and publicists. In 1932, a stray cat wandered into the lobby, and into history. The renowned actor John Barrymore named him "Hamlet" and since then the Algonquin has always had a resident cat. All the male cats are called Hamlet, and the females — for reasons unknown — are called Matilda.
