History phobe turned history fan, I write for kids (Duke, Dash, Audacity Jones), hunt for sea glass and do whatever Winston the Wonder Dog tells me.

Thank you Susan Novich for sharing your book creation story with us today; while I needed a reminder of its message, I especially love its happy ending: a brand new board book, Guess Who is Behind the Door.

I had the pleasure of meeting Nancy Coffelt at a children's authors festival years ago. Her life was dramatically changed in 2018. I cannot imagine the challenges she faced in finding her way back to written and visual art. Come read more

Cameron Kelly Rosenblum drew a tough Friend Friday slot: just a few days after an unsettled (and unsettling) election. I am grateful she is here today because I think the messages of her essay are essential at this particular time.

Because I am such a huge fan of early chapter books, I am thrilled to shine the spotlight on the first two books of Jennifer Jacobson's new series. I adore these sister stories and am confident you will, too.

I am so pleased to host Varian today in celebration of Twins, created with Shannon Wright, the first of what we can all hope is a nice long series of graphic novels.

In tonight’s presidential debate the President said the “Portland Sheriff” supports him. As the Multnomah County Sheriff I have never supported Donald Trump and will never support him.

To My people are from Falmouth, KY. I get it. It’s complicated. But our prez just refused to call out white supremacists. No: worse. He told them to “stand back and stand by.” In the name of all that’s bluegrass, pull up your suspenders & stand up for what’s right.

The inspirational music while introduces her budget, and we city employees wait to hear about major cuts and job losses, is a misstep, to put it lightly. It's like watching a campaign video.

Our president chose not to denounce white supremacists.

My heart was immediately captured by Jason Pratt's poignant picture book, Three Squeezes. Jason takes that simple gesture and gives it richer meaning in his wonderful family story. Read about how the story came to be.
