New interview on ALSC

Hi everyone,

I’m delighted to be featured on the current blog post of ALSC (Association for Library Service to Children). I’m grateful to Sarah Bean Thompson, Youth Services Manager at The Library Center, for doing the interview and posting the results to share with 4,000 members around the United States. Membership includes children’s and youth librarians, children’s literature experts, publishers, education and library school faculty members, and other adults committed to improving and ensuring the future of the nation through exemplary library service to children, their families, and others who work with children.

Here’s the link for anyone interested in reading and/or sharing the post with others.

  1. Congratulations to you, David!! Have I told you lately that you are amazing??? Happy Wednesday to you! (I’m off to 3rd grade today, and will hopefully be home before the snow gets too bad this afternoon. None yet – just in the forecast.)

    • Good morning, Su! I hope you don’t get snowed in during the day. Spending the night in a school with third graders would be the stuff of a movie! Tell your kids I said hello.

      • LOL!! I could imagine the fun, honestly! I always carry a small suitcase with clothes in my car during the winter….just in case. I’ll tell them you said hello!

      • Here’s an old favorite of mine from THE BOY WHO COUNTED STARS to read to the kids if you have time.
        A BRIEF ROMANCE

        “Oh Mistress Hen,
        Won’t you let me in?”
        The fox asked
        With a foxy grin,
        But the hen said, “I’m too clever.”

        “I love you so,”
        He murmured low,
        “Just one little squeeze,
        And then I’ll go,”
        But the hen just cackled, “Never!”

        “Don’t make me blue,
        My sweet Baboo,
        I’d do anything for you,”
        But the hen said, “No you wouldn’t.”

        “My knees are weak,
        I can scarcely speak,
        I long to kiss
        Your lovely beak,”
        And the hen said, “I just couldn’t.”

        He winked and smiled,
        “My darling child,
        I’ll only stay
        A little while,”
        And the hen said, “We really shouldn’t.”

        At last the hen
        Let the fox come in,
        And no one knows
        What happened then,
        Though it only took a minute.

        I can only say,
        When she hopped away,
        Her tummy was round
        And it made her sway,
        And I think the fox was in it.

  2. A question: has anyone tried to leave a comment under Sarah’s ALSC blog? I’ve tried three times to thank her but each time the comment is refused saying I didn’t type in my name and email address.
