The New Favorite Thing

Yeah, yeah.  So it might be narcissistic of her but the Bear’s new favorite pre-bedtime ritual is hearing me read aloud from the book I am writing about, well, her. And her sister. You see, I offer something Steig, Sendak, Yolen, and Krosoczka don’t and can’t.  Sure, they’ve got talent […]
