Favorite Instructionals This Week...

Loving the trend of How To books cropping up in PBs, especially these two super funny ones! Both have great humor and originality that rings true to authentic kid voice and vision.

Word of the Day...


Farewell Sendak & Stowell Nutcracker...

  I am deeply saddened to say goodbye to this beloved Seattle tradition, enjoyed throughout my childhood and well into adulthood, but at the same time excited to see what lovely whimsy Ian Falconer will bring to a new production.
