musings from a rainy day  
There has been a lot of reaction lately about my blog. Author Cynthia Leitich Smith (http://cynthialeitichsmith.blogspot.com/) blogged about my blog. Of course, she might be just a little prejudiced since I say nice things about hubby Greg's new book TOFU AND T REX. If you want to visit a web site with TONS of info about writers for children and YAs, check out Leitich Smith's incredible site: http://cynthialeitichsmith.blogspot.com/ Someday, I want to be Cyn.

Finished reading Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy. Forget the awful cover and dive into this one, folks. I wept out loud at the end of this unforgettable story. I finally finished reading my bathroom book (more about this later), ESCAPING TORNADO SEASON by Julie Williams. It is a novel in verse that speaks about racism, friendship, loss, and renewal. Very powerful.

Must get back to work on an article on the importance of reading aloud.

We have something in common - or someone. I adore Cyn. I call her friend, mentor, inspiration.
