I spent a lovely day signing, chatting and laughing with authors Tiffany Strelitz Haber and Ame Dyckman.

I LOVE getting letters and artwork from my readers! Here are just a few recent ones.
This photo was sent to me after I visited this young artist's school. How lovely!

Hmmm. Wasn't I just in Philly a few weeks ago? At this point, I'm not entirely sure!
On the final stop on the Screen Free Tour, I visited several wonderful schools and had a FANTASTIC time spreading the word of UNPLUGGING!
Now it's time for me to hop a train and head back home, but more specifically, jammies and bed.
Au Revoir, gang!

On a rainy morning the Book Street Boys amble to the venerable DC bookstore Politics & Prose, their final stop together on the now legendary Screen Free Tour.
This photo reminds me of 4 other guys, but I can't think of who they are. Any ideas?
Of course there were stacks of books to sign!
How many kids can fit in a bookstore?
They were all more than happy to take on the UNPLUGGED challenge!
We had a great time. Hope the kids did, too!
But soon it was time for us to go our separate ways.
Auf Wiedersehen, boys!

NPR invited me to speak about SCREEN FREE WEEK on their show HERE & NOW with host Robin Young, as well as guest Susan Linn, director of the Campaign for a Screen Free Childhood!
Give it a listen.
And let me know what you think.

How cool is this?
Me and my "Screen Free Brethren" Bob Staake, Chris Raschka and Tad Hills, also known as The Book Street Boys (the world's oldest kid lit boy band) were interviewed by picture book genius, graphic novelist extraordinaire and part-time game host Jarrett Krosoczka at the Eric Carle Museum!
For the enlightenment and entertainment of the audience, we were put through our artistic paces on stage.
Doug made an appearance, too!
After a day of drawing, signing and speaking, we feasted on all manner of BBQ at Bub's.

So great to make a pitstop at home base to read and sign at the TRIBECCA FAMILY FILM FESTIVAL! My friends at WORD Bookstore in Brooklyn supplied the books!
Well, almost everyone.
I talked to the kids about my books and then headed over to the story tent.
I signed tons of books and read to some pretty cute kids. Lots of fans and lots of fun. Everyone had a great time.
