What a month!
It was such an absolute honor to get this bright, shiny Charlotte Huck sticker at the NCTE Annual Conference and be among the authors honored for books that invite *compassion, imagination, and wonder*! Another highlight of the NCTE conference was signing Big Bear and Little Fish along side Patricia Newman and A River’s Gifts with our magnificent editor Carol Hinz. After the conference, I rushed to Lausanne, Switzerland, where I spent a week at Ecole Nouvelle being their Writer in Residence. I signed 250+ books, read Big Bear and Little Fish, and did activities with every class in the Primary School (ages 2 1/2 to 9).
