A good newspaper article and a quick read on a bit of the motivation and background of the book (and author).

The book was reviewed by hip mommy blogger Mihee Kim-Kort on her blog First Day Walking.  I really enjoyed reading her thoughts on the book.

Quite a few compliments on the book have been passed along to me in recent days, and all of those comments make special mention of the illustrations by the very talented Gwynne Simmons. At the risk of steering too much attention her way so that she is unavailable to do the second book in the I Want You to Know series, I encourage you to make a visit to her blog below. It contains a cornucopia of enchanting creations, both illustrated and handmade.

Thought I'd concoct a quick rhyme in honor of Father's Day.
My birthday falls on Father's Day As it does every year or so. That used to bug me as a kid. But I never let anyone know. Seeing that I have two kids now. And how quickly the years go. I focus on the ...

In a perfect world, every child would have a cozy corner like this... no TV, no iPad, no noise (and the lamps would be glued to the tables). I think my new book is on the shelf, but I guess it must be obstructed by the curtain...

Ahhh, so well stated Miss Hannah.  Life goes by a lot faster when you're staring at a screen... and you miss so much of it.
