Children’s Author Loretta Neff takes students on an educational and whimsical journey through her new book, Sip Tea with Mad Hatter

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, USA, May 16, 2017 / — EW Foundation, an educational nonprofit providing award-winning character education books and programs for children and youth, provided a story time preview of its second children’s book, Sip Tea with Mad Hatter, for Diamond View Elementary School, a Title I school in Greenacres, Florida.

Dressed in eccentric Mad Hatter style, Author Loretta Neff greeted over 550 students eager to participate in a Mad Hatter’s afternoon tea party and unbirthday celebration. Loretta took students on an educational and whimsical journey through her character-based rendition of the children’s classic, “Alice in Wonderland” to learn winsome behavior and Wonderrules of the Land.

With charm and exuberance, Ms. Neff brought to life the characters of Mad Hatter and friends through interactive lessons, song, and dance. Students learned to, “Stand Tall Like Alice and Greet with Confidence” and “Dance as Flexibly and Funky as Mad Hatter” to Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling.”

“The praise we receive from interactive story times and book provision is incredibly rewarding and made possible by donors like Daniel Abraham, who has extraordinary “Muchness”, a term we describe in the book as a person with passion and a very big heart”, added Ms. Neff. Every student received a signed copy of Sip Tea with Mad Hatter.

“The generous donation from S. Daniel Abraham has given the students of our school a treasure, a book that will help guide and lead them to be the BEST they can be!”

Catherine Applegate, community volunteer, and Loretta Neff, author and EWF founder recently honored Mr. Abraham in Palm Beach and presented him a signature crystal book award for his generous Founders Society donation to help support outreach to low-income communities.
