National Fairy Tale Day

The magic of stories like Jack and The Beanstalk, Princess and the Pea, Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Three Little Pigs and so many more stick with us as we grow from children to adults.  Just the other day, I playfully quoted Three Billy Goats Gruff to my husband and I haven't read that book since I was a child.  February 27th, is National Fairy Tale Day.  Make it a special day and make sure you read at least one Fairy Tale that day!  If you don't have one of the books, I'll bet you can find a version online with a Youtube reading or because it's public domain, Google might have the whole thing scanned so you can enjoy!

With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building
