Sorry I've been missing this past week! I had the chance to attend the International Reading Association's convention in Orlando and got really behind on the blogging--my apologies!
What does one do at a Reading Convention you ask? Well, for starters, you get your picture taken with the Llama of Llama Llama Red Pajama fame. Isn't that funny? I couldn't resist!
It was the only photo I ended up taking because I was so busy checking out all the beautiful books at various publisher's exhibit booths. There were also quite a few authors and illustrators available for book signings--
I got Jerry Pallotta to sign a few abc books for my girls. I didn't realize he had so many different ones to choose from. It was hard to limit myself to a few.
I was also able to hear Linda Sue Park speak about her latest book A Long Walk to Water--which I have not read yet, but am looking forward to reading very soon.
I have a bag full of new books that Juliet and I have been enjoying. We have found a few favorites and I look forward to sharing them with you this week!
