This has been quite a Monday.
We spent the weekend watching repeat performances of the elementary school’s version of The Wizard of Oz. My daughter was a munchkin, poppy, and Oz-ian. This is NOT the Somewhere-Over-the-Rainbow version. In this version, the poppies tell Dorothy “Don’t talk to strangers and don’t do drugs.” It was fun, but it killed the weekend.
Just before lunch, I get a call from school. Dear daughter has caught what everyone else has (and probably shared backstage). Please come get her. End of workday, start of an afternoon reading on the sofa.
Then the mail comes. The Wheat Doll arrives. What a beautiful book. For the first time EVER, II won a book giveaway! THANKS 100 Scope Notes you made my day! How ironic that it arrived on the day you posted about the future of reviewing picture bookse … and on an afternoon where I needed a new book. Man, you’re go-o-oo-oo-d!
