We just shipped off a package of Hey, Little Ant books and the very last CD in stock to Jennifer Lewkowski, an Occupational Therapist in South Africa. Jennifer works with individuals ages 3-50 who have issues managing gravity, touch, visual and auditory input, organisation, sequence, and motor planning.
Jennifer has read Hey, Little Ant to her patients, ever since hearing Special Olympics Athlete Loretta Claiborne talk about the book at The South African Association of Learning Disabilities. Loretta Claiborne is an incredible athlete who is a member of the Women in Sports Hall of Fame and the Special Olympics International Hall of Fame.
A book that began with ants in a driveway in Portland, Maine, sure seems to have made its way around the globe. Thank you Jennifer, thank you Loretta. We are honored that Hey, Little Ant speaks to you.
