Book cover of Lenny’s Big Feelings

Kelly Cassella and Samantha Vasy, Curriculum and Instruction doctoral students, published a book titled Lenny’s Big Feelings in September 2022.

Lenny is a second grader who is learning the difference between fair and equal. Lenny experiences big feelings about his classmates who have exceptionalities and all the extra special things they need to learn at school, and he wonders why he doesn't get extra special things too. Can Lenny understand the true difference between fair and equal? 

Cassella and Vasy hosted a book reading and discussion with the preservice teachers enrolled in Crystal Machado’s ECED215 The Developing Child on Wednesday, October 12, from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.  

The book is available on Amazon
