Have you seen the New York Times The 25 Best Children’s Books of 2021 list? Pretty cool. And I see some friends there - love that!

I love this interview with the current Children's Literature Laureate Jason Reynolds on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The comments are lovely too. Click the image to watch on Youtube:

So glad to hear that Reading Rainbow is coming back!

Happy to hear my friend, Dr. Elisa Koehler, interviewed on the radio recently about her role as Conductor for the Rock Hill Symphony Christmas Concert!

This song by my TEDx Talk coach, Mel Sherwood, is worth a listen: Be More RED!

How Exciting! El Deafo by Cece Bell is being made into an animated feature! CHECK IT OUT at 100 Scope Notes!

Tons of Best Children's Books of the Year lists are coming out - here's one from The Guardian; here's another from Brightly - great stuff!
