What a Great Day!

                                                                                                                                                                  I recently visited All Saints School, Kenwood, Ohio, where I had breakfast with the teachers, gave three presentations, shared a pizza lunch with accelerated readers, autographed my books, and talked to lots of wonderful kids, teachers, parents, etc. 

I really enjoyed my visit! There's a very caring environment there, but I can tell the kids are challenged, too. How great is that?

Thanks to everyone at All Saints for making it such a lovely day!

Delightful new picture book!

I love The King Cake Baby by Keila Dawson! This charming picture book gives the old gingerbread man story a New Orleans twist. This time the escapee is the tiny baby meant to be hidden in a king cake. (A delicious New Orleans tradition!) Lively language by author Keila Dawson and fun illustrations by Vernon Smith bring New Orleans to life and make this a story kids will love. Highly recommended! Get it here!
