From the Author
I grew up in the Susquehanna Valley in Pennsylvania and often made visits to Lancaster County. This area is rich with history, quilts, unique food, and beautiful hand-crafted furniture. I chose this setting with the fictional town of Willow Creek for my Daisy’s Tea Garden series. I also wanted to incorporate a sense of family. My sleuth Daisy is a widow with two teenage daughters. Daisy and her Aunt Iris are partners in running the tea garden. I hope you find Daisy’s Tea Garden a cozy place with warmth, soup and baked goods that you want to visit often. Watch for book 3 in my Daisy series in 2019, Murder With Cucumber Sandwiches.
Tuesday & Hope you had a great 3 day holiday. We are on Summer Break but learning doesn’t stop at our house & I am sure you are the same .
Summer Reading Loss :
On the average, students’ achievement scores declined over summer vacation by one month’s worth of school-year learning,
(2) declines were sharper for math than for reading, and
(3) the extent of loss was larger at higher grade levels. Importantly, they also concluded that income-based reading gaps grew over the summer, given that middle class students tended to show improvement in reading skills while lower-income students tended to experience loss.
