Tessa is here!

This giant pallet of books arrived at my house yesterday, and darned it if I wasn't so nervous about its contents I didn't even open it until this morning. So much to be concerned about. With so many backers and supporters along the way, I feel more beholden to the final product than I ever have in my life. What if it sucks? What if it looks cheap?

All concerns were swept aside when I opened the first box to discover:

THEY ARE GORGEOUS!

My husband, Adam and I started the big mailing project today and have been working nonstop. We're going through the orders in the order we received them, so you should expect your book in the next few weeks. Thanks for your patience. It's quite an endeavor.

Blog Tour

The Tessalation! blog tour starts today with a post on how to use the book in the classroom over at Kids Math Teacher. Lucy Ravitch, a fellow Kickstarter creator and an advocate for math play and everyday math, runs a fantastic site with tips and ideas. I encourage you to check it out.

Happy summer to you all,

Emily

      I'm so, so, so very excited about your book! Can't wait to see it in person.
      It was great to see your little guys and Adam at last week's Downtown Association Thursday Street Party (or whatever they call it). So much fun!

      Cheers,
