Tomorrow, I’m honored to be featured in the Children’s Books Spotlight Series which shares stories of authors and illustrators. You probably enjoyed the Last full moon of the decade and I’ve shared many other moon photos in my blog over the years.

As I said to a friend yesterday, I’m a drop in the bucket in this ocean of talent. I suppose a more appropriate analogy would have been I’m a tinyContinue reading “Apollopalooza”
1. Be curious – Aliana wanted to know why the light from the full moon was so bright, so she read about the phases of the moon. 2.
