storytime fun

I just wrapped up a round of storytimes and book signings for Sweet Dreams Lullaby. It's so fun to finally be able to share a new book, after waiting about a year for it to be published. And kids always surprise me by what they notice or point out or respond to. I learn just as much as kids do from the experience–interacting with kids, parents and children's book lovers is really one of the the most rewarding parts of what I do.

Here are some highlights of some past events...

Cleveland event at Joseph-Beth on Feb. 20, 2010:
