It's Snow Much Fun!

If you like snow, New England is the place to be this February! We're on snow storm #3 for the month and the piles are getting higher and higher. I thought you might all like a peek at our Red Elephant sculpture by Mo Willems in our courtyard. Any more snow and we might not be able to see him anymore!

It's the perfect weather for cozying up with a book! If winter's not your thing, or you're already dreaming of a warm and colorful spring, here are a few of our favorite Spring books this month to keep your spirits bright! READ MORE

Picture Book Puzzler: Spring has Sprung!

Happy Spring! There's one favorite classic children's novel of mine that I re-read every year in the spring. Can you guess what book it is by the quote below? “Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like? You don't see it in rooms if you are ill." "It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine, and things pushing up and working under the earth..." What a lovely and perfect way to describe spring. Do you recognize the book? Put your guesses in the comments below and I'll be back at the end of the week with the answer. READ MORE

Picture Book Puzzler: It Ain't Easy Being Green

We're close to spring. I can feel it. This may very well be the most mild winter I've ever experienced. It's not even March and already I can see little bits of green poking up in my flower gardens as my daffodils and tulips emerge. This has put me in a mood for the color green! So, for this week's puzzler, I've collected ten green covers of popular picture books. Can you name each book from the small glimpse of its cover? Put your guesses in the comments below and I'll be back at the end of the week with the answers. Think spring! READ MORE
