We are well into our second week of our American sojourn in the Big-D and as part of my total vacation -assimilation plan (I’ve also taken to applying several more coats of mascara and using “y’all” as part of my general lexicon) I’ve chosen another Brooklyn-based book author/illustrator to celebrate (there really does seem to [...]

Whenever I go travelling I try to get into what the locals are into, you know, “When in Rome” and all that so now that we are on a family trip to the U, S and A to visit my parents, I figured I could introduce you to some of America’s gifts to children’s literature. [...]

As the new baby dust settles I find I have a tad more time to write my blog. Having two is like increasing your child quotient exponentially. Really, it’s like having 4 especially at the beginning.

The day before last I finally completed the 2011 Census and I think it was the short form for all of those who remember the hoopla of the long versus short form. Anyway it’s really easy and you can do it online. Right after I was asked to participate in another voluntary household survey and [...]

As a parent I often have this insatiable urge to shield my daughter from the unpleasant things in life. Whether in song verse (you’d be amazed at how negative, macabre and downright scary some popular children’s songs are if you really listened to them. I mean “down will come baby cradle and all” isn’t the [...]
