When education consultant ML Nichols sees parents of younger children at her talks, she knows to expect a lot of questions. Now she has packed a lot of answers into her new book, “The Parent Backpack for Kindergarten Through Grade 5.”
“This is the book I wish I had,” said the Duxbury mother of two. “I remember those years when kids start school and you have no idea what to expect. There’s so much that’s unknown. I just hope [the book] is helpful for them.”
She will speak about her book next month at author’s talks in Hanover, Cohasset, and Mansfield.
Author, consultant, speaker, and founder of The Parent Connection, a nonprofit parent education group serving parents and teachers in the south of Boston region and beyond, Nichols studied how how parenting intersects with teaching and learning.
