I've had another wonderful year of writing and visiting schools. I continue to be tremendously impressed by the wonderful work being done by kids, teachers and librarians.

I just learned that Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is now offering a subscription service "Curious World App" which will include 14 of Lynn's and my books. Fun!

And I'm very excited that Houghton Mifflin Harcourt brought out Laugh-Along Lessons - 5 Minute Stories. It will include:Hurty Feelings, It Wasn't My Fault, Listen Buddy, Me First, A Porcupine Named Fluffy, Princess Penelope's Parrot, The Wizard the Fair and the Magic Chicken and The Sheep in Wolf's Clothing.

Boris and the Worrisome Wakies just came out. It's the tale of a badger who thinks of every excuse in the book not to go to sleep. Sound familiar, anyone???

Finally, if you want to read a wonderful article about my illustrator Lynn Munsinger go to http://now.tufts.edu/articles/illustrators-menagerie. Taylot McNeil, Senior News Editor at Tufts University, has just posted a superb piece. I learned a lot about my good friend!

Happy reading to you!
