my thoughts on motherhood, kids, books and stuff

A Couple of My Favorites

I came across these writing tips while I was browsing the website of one of my new favorite authors, Kate DiCamillo.  I especially love tips #4, #5, and #6 because they are different from tips I have read on other lists.

journey The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is one of my favorite kids books.  Not only is the story beautiful, but the illustrations are amazing.  I highly recommend it for all ages. 



tiger I am reading The Tiger Rising right now and I love her talent of writing in a way that you can relate to and feel empathy for the characters.
