At the ALSC Conference in Oakland, I met Beth Wren, a lecturer at San Jose State Univeristy iSchool. She had such wonderful things to say about MGOL that I asked if she would feel comfortable sending me an email which I could post on the blog, and she agreed. Here it is:
I personally was touched by how beautiful and simple the MGOL was when I was just starting out as a children’s librarian a few years back now. My mentor introduced me to it and said, “You might want to look at this as a way to really touch the little ones and the grown ups who bring them with the ideas and techniques Dr. Diamant-Cohen gives.”
I did, and even though I am now teaching in an iSchool I still pass along to all of my youth services students (especially those going into children’s services) this gift that I think the MGOL is.
Thanks Betsy and all the others who continue to use these key ideas and techniques and touch children’s lives in so many ways through story times and other programming.

Thank you Beth, for such wonderful, positive feedback!
