I received a grant from Highlights to attend their summer conference. I’m so thrilled to have the opportunity to meet people from the publishing world. But July is coming fast and I have so many things to do before the conference. I’m looking forward to a good time.
My 6-year-old son’s face turned beet red when I read the poem “Blush” from Laura Salas’s new book “Stampede” to him. Turns out he has a crush on a classmate.
Brandon, my 6-year-old son, was all fired up for the Easter Bunny this year. He made three extra Easter bags out of paper (we go through a lot of paper in this home). One basket was the size of a poster board. What was the Easter Bunny supposed to put in that? Baby bunnies?
In honor of Poetry month, Jason, my 10-year-old son, and I wrote a poem about Good Friday.
There has never been a better time to be a teacher, librarian, student, writer. Books abound all around us. Some books are for the sole purpose of entertaining us, while others fill our minds with knowledge and wonder. I like to picture books (no pun intended) as gardens. The more we read them, the faster our knowledge grows.
My all time favorite Golden Book is “Pokey Little Puppy”. Who can’t relate to five little puppies escaping from their backyard and exploring the world outside their fence.
