I had the pleasure of being part of September Picture Book Bonanza alongside Jon Agee, David Soman, and Todd Kessler at the iconic Books of Wonder in Manhattan. It was a fun surprise to top off our panel presentation with CUTE PUPPIES (!!!) from R.E.A.D., a literacy organization that uses therapy dogs to help children with reading. The kids got to share our books with these adorable, furry friends.
Even sweeter is this note that just came to my inbox:
"My son stayed up late last night and I couldn't figure out why. This morning, I discovered he was drawing the dog from your book! He was practicing it over and over. I've never seen him do this before ... You inspired him!"
