Sandbox Mystery Writing Contest

Magic Lenses is my new story book designed to help students see how much better things can be when they are open to listening to others and their different ideas. The Magic Lenses opens the children’s eyes to the real beauty of working together. It also encourages students to imagine what other magic the lenses are capable of creating and authoring a sequel for the next issue of The Sandbox Mystery Series.
