The Story Behind the Story
One Amoeba was born many years ago when I had aspirations to write children’s picture books. I left that dream behind in favor of writing nonfiction books, and later TpT products. I recently rediscovered the manuscript on my hard drive and thought that it might be of use to primary teachers. I knew I did not have the artistic talent to bring the amoebas to life, so I asked my friend Susannah Westby of Whimsy Workshop Teaching to create the amoebas. I was beyond thrilled at what Susannah came up with and hope that you and your students love these adorable amoebas as much as I do!
