I'm back a little early from my blogging break, simply because I have some fun news to share. Last night I had the opportunity to meet one of my favorite picture book authors, Kelly DiPucchio! She was at Nicola's Books in Ann Arbor sharing her new picture book, Crafty Chloe. Here we are:
It was so exciting to meet Kelly in person and talk. I just love her writing and the subtle messages she inserts into her stories for kids. Here are a few links to my thoughts on some of her books:
I am so grateful for the opportunity to meet and share with Kelly. The writing community is filled with wonderful and amazing people! I would also like to give a shout out to Nicola's Books. It is an amazing bookstore and their children's department is HUGE!
Be sure to stop by next week on Monday for an amazing middle grade book I want to share with you. On Friday I will be part of a blog tour for a brand new picture book by another favorite author of mine. I will also be giving away a signed hardcover of the book.
On another note, I've been pretty successful with my personal goal of writing for five minutes every day. Some days it is only for the five, but other days it is much more. But no matter what, I'm writing and that's what counts!
