    Great job Scout and Sophie! Your mom rocks for helping you do this as well as your dad for taking you to some cool, inspiring trips for you to join. I think going to the Miami Book Fair was a great learning experience. How awesome it is that you were so inspired to tell your stories! Alexander Montessori School is proud of your work and follow through in sharing your adventures. Dr. Joyce McGhee, Co-Head of Alexander Montessori School
