    I am thrilled to hear that April Pulley Sayre will be your featured guest tomorrow. Last year, I read Vulture View to the kindergartners and they enjoyed it. She’s an inspiration and ideal model to those of us who would like to try writing lyrical text to convey non-fiction material. Thank you.

    • Thanks, Carol-Ann,

      April is marvelous. I’m glad to feature her and feel sure that she’ll make new fans of anyone who reads her for the first time.
