If you want a small glimpse into the scattered nature of my mind at this stage of life, this certainly qualifies. I had a new children’s book come out in recent months and as a friend pointed out to me, I mostly forgot to tell people about it. Or, as he so put it –Continue reading “Lucy and the Ghost Take the Stage!”

A girl and her dog take to the skies…again!
Let’s be honest. I’m not above a little shameless self-promotion every now and then. Perhaps you’re a parent, like me, reading this. And perhaps, also like me, your kids love reading and can’t put down a good book or graphic novel. And maybe, like me, you’re always on the lookout for graphic novels that provideContinue reading “A girl and her dog take to the skies…again!”
A Girl and Her Dog
What would you do if you suddenly found yourself with super powers? It’s the question a middle school girl named Lacey finds herself facing when she and her dog stumble across a pair of costumes that do just that, imbuing both kid and canine with powers beyond those of mere mortals.

The Little Lamp
So, this is a pretty important week for me. Not because I’ll be one step closer to forty by the time the week is through, but because a tale that’s been floating in my mind for many years is finally seeing the light of day. This week marks the release of my first children’s pictureContinue reading “The Little Lamp”

Our two and a half year old daughter has a book she adores called 5-Minute Pinkalicious Stories, filled with 12 different stories featuring her favorite animated counterpart, Pinkalicious. It was found in her Easter basket, a gift from that hippity hoppity Easter Bunny, and has become a staple of almost every evening storytime. Twelve storiesContinue reading “Read it again! And again! And again!”

There is no one alive more youer than you.” That comes from Happy Birthday To You, one of the myriad of books in the catalog of Dr. Seuss masterpieces that decorate many a bookshelf and have influenced any number of childhood, and foster a creativity acrossContinue reading “Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss”
Imagination Celebration – The Imagination Library
As adults, it’s rare that the mail brings us much of anything other than a handful of bills to be paid yet again this month. Maybe the occasional solicitation from the car dealership. But let’s face it, it’s usually bills. Remember when we were kids, though, and something in the mail felt like Christmas time?Continue reading “Imagination Celebration – The Imagination Library”
The Secret Origin of Curious George!
I love Curious George. I really do. I very fondly remember reading the books as a kid and those cartoons that looked like the books come to life back in the 80s. I even still have an old drawing of George I did when I was seven years old, discovered last year among some itemsContinue reading “The Secret Origin of Curious George!”
Big Boy Bed
Just like the warm breeze of summer is destined to make way to chilly winds of fall, so too go the years of our lives, moving, what seems, ever-faster the older we get. And when it comes to watching our children grow, that train of time seems to forever be speeding faster and faster awayContinue reading “Big Boy Bed”
The beat of the drums. The shaking of maracas. And our son running around a room wanting to play with a hula hoop on the wall. It’s Kindermusik time. What’s Kindermusik? I will explain to you, as I was completely unaware myself until Meg sent me the links one day that led to our signingContinue reading “Kindermusik”
