Phew. This week. I could almost hear the collective breath of relief from the world on Wednesday and it was hard to keep tears out of my eyes. What a powerful moment of symbolism for the inauguration. Hopefully this is more than just a symbol and leads to 4 years of healing and growth.
|Oscar loved the marching bands.|
|What a moment.|
Here are some cool things for your weekend.
National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman was one of the most outstanding performances of the inauguration. In case you missed hearing her poem, here it is.
And in amazing news, Gorman's first children's book, illustrated by Loren Long, comes out in September.
I posted before about bookstores who now offer book subscriptions. A friend recently told me about another book subscription: OwlCrate. She highly recommends it!
An ode to the color blue, in picture book form.
Another fun list from Travis Jonker, Books about books!
