It’s an August Friday, one-fifth of the Fridays in August 2012, and that means that I’m sharing with you an “augmented fifth” middle grade novel — a book that has augmented my life, has enriched my life, and that I am happy to recommend to others. Since my Monday post this week talked about writing and the ways writers can improve their craft, and since Emma Walton Hamilton has been…

Julie Andrews Collection of Poems, Songs and Lullabies

  A wonderful way to encourage children’s enjoyment of reading and being read to is to share poetry with them from an early age. My mother and I loved to recite poetry to and with each other, and we shared poetry together until her last days. In the last couple of years of her life, one of the books we turned to most often was this anthology, which has something…

Celebrating Three Special People

Cue the herald trumpets! Those of you who have been reading my blog for some time will know that October 1 is a special day of celebration for me. It is the birthday of three people whom I admire, who have directly or indirectly provided guidance, example, wisdom, and strength. As is my custom when October 1 falls on or near a blogging day, today I want to celebrate those…

My List of 100 Memorable Novels. With a Few Memoirs.

A list of 100 favorite/impactful/memorable novels — Nathan Bransford did it. So did Becky Levine. I’m going to do it, too, and pop on to my blog long enough to post it, so you can think about your 100 favorite books (and perhaps find a few on my list, or Becky’s, or Nathan’s, that you want to read this summer.) I’ll post them in alphabetical order, with some of the…

While I have a few memories of that, my main and most cherished memories are of my mother singing to me. She had a beautiful, warm, rich mezzo-soprano voice, and was in demand as a soloist in our rural area. I took voice lessons from the same wonderful woman who…
