Thank you, Southside Roast! Thank you, kids (and grownups too!)

I had a WONDERFUL time reading stories this morning at the Southside Roast and wanted to thank owner, Ann, for hosting me. We had a great turn out with a quilt full of children eager to hear some good stories while the adults enjoyed iced coffee and conversation.

What’s even more exciting to me is that this lovely opportunity affirms just how much I’m going to love reading my very own picture book when it debuts next summer. I can’t wait to take GOODNIGHT, ARK (Zonderkidz, 2014) into classrooms, libraries, book shops and coffeehouse so I can share it with as many children as I can.  That will be a real treat!

With that fun thought thought in mind, here are a few snapshots from this morning to share in celebration of children, coffee, and great books.IMG_2232

    • It was great. I read HOGWASH, by Karma Wilson, PUNK FARM, by Jarrett Krosoczka, WHAT THE LADYBUG HEARD, by Julia Donaldson, and BIG CHICKENS, by Leslie Helakoski. The kids sat riveted to the story, despite the cheering banging of coffee making. I can’t wait to read again.
