I’m so excited about the Youth Media Awards! I’m planning on waking up at 5am to watch it live and will be talking about it practically all day- with my boss before work, at work with customers, and (perhaps) during the launch of the children’s literature book club for adults I started- Young @ Heart. Hopefully, I can blog about this bookish-sounding day.

These were a good addition to my A to Z Picture Book Series Challenge. They remind me a little bit of Mo Willems’ Elephant & Piggie series but for an even younger crowd!

I’m hoping to finally finish Sonia Sotomayor’s My Beloved World. I also picked up some library books which included E.B. White’s Stuart Little and I’m finding it quite delightful so far!
