Then the year is over, and her job is done. But the plants will keep growing, uncurling their stems, stretching their leaves outward and showing their faces to the sun.

Kari-Lynn Winters is an award-winning children’s author, playwright, performer, and scholar. An experienced teacher of writing, Kari-Lynn has worked with students across Canada and the United States in preschools, elementary and high schools, community centres, festivals, and universities. Her latest book, Runaway Alphabet, is a fun way to introduce the alphabet to children. Instead of focusing on words beginning with each letter of the alphabet (a is for alligator, etc.), it introduces letters to kids through sounds made by people or objects, such as “g-g-g-g” for the sound Pa makes when gulping down his coffee. Kari-Lynn is an assistant professor at Brock University. Her research interests include drama in education, children’s literature, literacy, and multimodal forms of learning. More information about Kari-Lynn and her books (i.e., book reviews, author visits, teachers’ guides) can be found at www.kariwinters.com.
