Good News, Bad News

the bad news is: i broke my right arm. skating. with children. ill-advised attempt to recapture my ice-castles-wanna-be youth.

the good news is: you’ll get to enjoy my pal diana blogging in my place on Pajamazon, which would have been a two-week gig while i was on vaca but is now an extended til-i-get-the-cast-off run. she’s fun, she’s funny and she knows kids’ books. you may want to break my other arm to keep her around longer!

but please don’t!


When Steve Met Harry

And, no, I’m not talking about the new Adam Sandler movie.

Here's Stephen Colbert channeling his inner twelve year old (like so many of us) instead of introducing his show:

Yes, that’s what I’m talking about, folks. If you want your kids to read, you need to show them that you’re a reader, too. So set a good example like Colbert, OK? Crack open that new book you’ve been dying to read - Harry Potter or otherwise - and let your kids fend for themselves for a few days. Just not near bodies of water (that includes swimming pools, tubs, and, heck, even sinks) or while driving them to camp.

This has been a public service announcement from Stephen Colbert and me.


Donny's... I mean, ERICA's ALA Antics

Want to know what I did at the American Library Association annual conference and what it has to do with Donny Osmond dressed as Joseph?

Go to Pajamazon and see for yourself!


Build Me Up, Buttercup

To read about my dinner with David Macauley (okay, and a few other people... though we did sit at the same table!) at the National Building Museum, go to Pajamazon.

Right now, no dawdling.

Thank you!


Librarians Rock!

Please visit me at Pajamazon! to see my tribute to librarians that rock (in more ways than one).

And please tell your favorite librarian (or teacher or media specialist) to come visit me in person at the American Library Association's Annual Conference in Washington, DC.

At the ALA conference, I will be signing books at the Abrams booth (#1700) on Saturday, June 23 from 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. I'll also have free classroom and activity guides, bookmarks and a squirrel on my head (see photo, previous post).

Rock on!
