Power of reading  
Quick post before I crash. Spent most of today attending and presenting at the Jan Paris Bookfest. The conference began more than 3 decades ago as the Bluebonnet conference thanks to the work of Dr. janelle Paris in establishing the process for our Texas Bluebonnet Award. A few years ago, we renamed the conference in Alan's honor.

Todd Strasser kicked things off this morning with a wonderful presentation about Fallout. Tammi Sauer finished our day with an enthusiastic presentation on writing picture books. Between the two I talked about the history of books and reading research from the 1950s to today.

I will be posting the power point to Slideshare (www.slideshare.net/professornana) later this weekend.
