If you have come here from the Cybils
page, welcome! Let me answer the question I'm sure is foremost in your mind: I think
the book I'm holding in that picture is Pastwatch
by Orson Scott Card--not a children's book, but an incredible story that is always my gift of choice for anyone I know who is having a crisis of optimism.
I didn't mention it in the interview, but this is actually a shared blog, although I'm the primary contributor. The blog is open to all of the Notes from the Windowsill
staff, including Evan, aka my in-house geek, who does the technical work for Notes, edits my grammar (remaining errors are my own fault, and quite possibly intentional) and reads the books I can't stand to our son. In return, I read the books he
can't stand to our son. Evan rarely posts, but when he does, it is a doozy.
Animouse is a talented graphic designer who creates our letterhead, business cards and so on. She shares our passion
for children's books, but generally prefers to lurk.
If you are new, I currently have two classic children's book questions
up for discussion. Please add your thoughts.
