Deftones... Haven't seen them since White Pony. We're both getting up there...
Morning visitors in Cole.
Date night! #emptynest
Drew doesn't have Instagram... :(
Trying out the Reuben at Olive & Finch. (Protip: bring a lunch buddy to share with... that's a lot of sandwich)
Coming down the backside.
heading to a wedding...
the single most important possession for me hold onto from the basement. 😂 #sortingboxes #age9 #Saved
How many juvie protags do you recall knowing taxidermy? Daphne Kalmar’s Donut joins all the classic’s sassy females (e.g. Anne, Laura). & I could hug Tiny for being so awesome. The writing is smart, informative, creative—very Donut-y. #historicalfiction #kidsliterature
Found these lovelies in a box today...
@talya_wren is my daughter. #hotfuzz #filmnerd #employed
think Kate DiCamillo, but w/out the melancholy, or David Almond, w/out the knot in your belly. think old, dark-edged, fantastical, soulful, delightful. I would’ve read this aloud to @talya_wren years ago. #matildawoods #kidsliterature #australian
Vikings!! a fierce & quite tear-full female protagonist. violence & tenderness. effortlessly egalitarian. a swoon-worthy love-interest with whom @adrienneyoungbooks beautifully navigates the captive narrative & consent—& yes! to that resolution. also remarkable: the restraint & focus. #vikings #ya #fantasyadventure #refreshing
So proud of my girl: @talya_wren graduated with honors (b/w cords) from Denver School of the Arts; National Honor Society (stole); Biliterate (gold/white cords).
All the positive press and starred reviews for #AmalUnbound by @aishacs is completely warranted. Book club this one, friends; read it in conversation w/ #malalayousafzai . #kidsliterature #diversityinliterature
