A New Lesson Plan for Valentine’s Day!

We’ve just released a FREE lesson plan to accompany our newest HiLo release & first romance, Bake Sale by Suzanne Kamata.

In Bake Sale, two single parents meet during a holiday bake sale at Cherry Blossom International School in Toyko, where their kids are great friends. Laura Murata is a professor and the divorced mother of Maya, a seven-year-old girl. Widower Kazu Mori is a dentist raising his son, Max, on his own. The two are sweet on each other from the first moment but will misunderstandings make their budding relationship crumble? Love requires honesty…but not too much!

Check out the lesson plan here and let us know what you think!
