JUDITH ENNES is a school teacher during non-writing hours. She has taught grades 2 through 6 during her career. Mrs. Ennes loves teaching the content areas of history and science. When she finds the material rather sparse, she writes a book to cover the needed information. In fact, Kalakala Comes Home was used as an example of writing for her students. Mrs. Ennes finds her pupils are often fascinated when she takes a risk and shares her own writing with them. Judith and her family, which includes a very supportive and loving husband, reside in Redmond, Washington. Six children and grandchildren make for an enriching life. She loves her older farm style house which is filled with antiques and a large yard surrounded by tall evergreens. The family is kept company by one old dog and two finicky cats. Camping, reading, and travel (Hawaii and Mexico) fill in the few spare moments, and even then you will often find Mrs. Ennes taking notes or writing on her project.Review:
