As a teacher, kids are never very far from my mind! In these days of the pandemic, I find myself thinking a lot about how the kids of this world are dealing with all the craziness!
I often remember the kids I met on The Big Buna Bash's book tour (which was only six weeks ago but seems like ages). At my book events we made coffee-bean candles as coffee is one of my book's themes.
There are many art projects that can be done with coffee beans, or any beans for that matter. Here is a great site with some ideas to get you started! www.playideas.com/25-bean-crafts-for-kids/
I had so much fun writing The Big Buna Bash, and I want to share it to inspire cultural pride in kids who might feel like they don't fit in because of their differences. I believe in diversity and inclusion; that's why I wrote The Big Buna Bash!
