Michael Leannah was a teacher in elementary schools for more than 30 years and is the author of an instruction manual for teachers, We Think with Ink, and the picture books Most People and Goodnight Whispers. His children’s fiction has been published in Highlights for Children, Ladybug, and other magazines. A resident of Wisconsin, he is a father and proud grandfather.
Most Days is a book about mindfulness. About relishing the magic of the here and now. About enjoying the extraordinary unfoldings of an ordinary day. Moving from morning to night, the narrator becomes, by turns, boy or girl, of ever-changing ethnicity and ability, inhabiting city, country, or suburb. They are all children everywhere, opening themselves to the gift of time
“A feast of simple sensory experiences over the course of a day…Guaranteed to help readers of all ages find wonder each day.” – Kirkus, Starred Review
*Registration is limited. Activity kits will be available for pick up at Mead Library April 10-16, and the Zoom link will be e-mailed on April 16, the day before the program
