As daycare teachers in Waupun, Wisconsin for a combined total of 18 years, Dorothy A. Peterson and Rae Jean Bett listened to children and watched them and marveled at what they witnessed. They collected about 100 pages of quotes they heard and observations they made and shared these stories with fellow teachers and parents, and their smiles and laughter inspired Peterson and Rae to write Small Talk. There is 10 years of quotes collected to make Small Talk.
