Other Miscellaneous Happenings:

  • My blogging friend, Cathy of 746 Books, recently posted about a great picture book by Chris Van Allsburg entitled The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. Check out her post on this book by clicking here. Van Allsburg (visit his website here) is an American author and illustrator of children’s books, including The Polar Express and Jumanji.  In The Mysteries of Harris Burdick, each picture is paired with a title and a few lines, designed to spark the imagination. My kids have outgrown picture books, but I got it at the library anyway. I agree with Kathy – this book isn’t just for kids!

  • Summer is just around the corner and many parents are wondering how they will be able to keep their kids reading. My friend, Margaret, sent me a link to this helpful article from the Washington Post, Advice from kids’ authors: How do you get kids excited to read?
  • And for adult readers, Popsugar.com has published a list of the hottest new books to read this summer. Click here to check it out!

  1. I loved Still Life with Bread Crumbs…in fact, I am a big fan and eagerly await all of her books, both fiction and nonfiction. I see some nonfiction books I haven’t read…off to check them out!

  2. She’s my favorite. I love her writing style, both fiction and non-fiction. Blessings is another one of her best. I’ve read them all, fiction and non-fiction. This one is interesting because it’s essentially a romance, but done so well. I could just keep rambling. She’s brilliant. Enjoy!
