Ten writers for children. All with something to say.


I went to see Christy's presentation at the Norton Simon Museum this afternoon, and all I can say is wow! She gave an insightful and inspring talk that the crowd thoroughly enjoyed. How do I know this? I eavesdropped while I was standing in line to buy my own copy of the book.

Thanks, Christy for a delightful afternoon. It was nice to meet you and your "driver." :)

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

I am just back from a Saint Paul Saints baseball game where I read a copy of my newly released (!) picture book, 1 + 1 = 5 and Other Unlikely Additions. As I took my place on the field where I read my book to a group of kids before the game started, I couldn't help but be amused. Back in elementary school I used to hide in the coatroom when it came time to play softball so I wouldn't have to take part. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that I'd have anything to do with professional baseball. Fortunately today I didn't have to blindly swing at a ball or cower in right field; all I had to do was share my latest book with a group of young baseball and book fans, and marvel at how life pitches us some pleasant surprises.
