Day Brightener

Though I hate to admit it, occasionally I do have a pout-pout kind of day.

Today was one of those days.

But then I walked out to my mailbox.  And there I found a big envelope, addressed to me, and full of art and letters from nearly a hundred wonderful kids.  Here's just a small sampling...




Suddenly I felt cheery-cheery again!

That, and lucky, and thankful.

And ever so very grateful.

Smooch!

Oh what a wonderful surprise! Makes the difficult writing days all worthwhile, I'm sure!

(I love the pout-pout fish as well.)

Thank you, all of you! It's a wonderful privilege to be involved in a children's book. To write the book is one thing; then there's the illustrator who brings a whole new aspect to the story; but it's the readers who truly bring things to life. Enjoying the story, singing the story, making art -- it's all very magical!! I feel humbled and happy to be a part of it.
