November 14, 2023

Dr. Holly Bell started as a storyteller, but in 15 years has served as a scholar, program coordinator, preschool facilitator, preschool assistant, trainer, staff member, and content developer. She serves as director of children’s services and the Earlysteps System Point of Entry Program for Easterseals Louisiana and professor of practice at Tulane University.

Her favorite Prime Time book? That’s a tough one.

“It’s so hard to narrow it down to just one because there are so many incredible books included in the Prime Time bibliography. I love ‘Waiting’ by Kevin Henkes and Jon Klassen’s ‘This is Not My Hat’ and ‘I Want My Hat Back.’ I like the Jon Klassen books, because the illustrations tell so much of the story and there is a lot in the book that can be inferred. They aren’t wordy, but there is just enough to leave you to think about,” she said.
