105 Ways to Give a Book

It’s All About Me Today

I imagine that every day all over the Internet, people are saying, “Enough with these famous authors with their pretty words and their great stories. Where, oh where, are the interviews with MotherReader?”

Well, as it turns out, there are not one but two interviews with yours truly. Today I’m featured in the Seven Impossible Interviews Before Breakfast. These cool ladies of 7ITBB have been setting out over the kidlitosphere to get to know us. They’ve profiled Liz, Betsy, and Robert. Who knows when they’ll be coming for you. For extra interview fun, see if you can guess my favorite curse word before you get to that part. And please comment there, so it looks like people like me.

As a Cybils judge for picture books, my profile was also on their page on Friday. I missed it completely then because I was having a Bad Day, but now I’m happy to point it out as part of MotherReader week. (Hey, it was 7ITBB’s idea.) I could use a celebration, because I missed my own blog birthday in January. I’m a terrible blog mother.

Oh, and Sunday counts in MotherReader week because I broke the news about stuffed animals for the Pigeon, Knuffle Bunny, and Leonardo the Terrible Monster. That was awesome. In the same post, I also opened up discussion as to whether I should go to New York City on Friday, February 9th — which actually, would make a spectacular conclusion to MotherReader week as I share time with my listed blog I would take to the prom, Fuse#8. And then we can celebrate her blog birthday in the proper way — with alcohol.

I feel like their should be a song:

It's MotherReader Day
We've come here to say
We're so glad
(the opposite of sad)
What a lovely MotherReader Day!

Mother Reader week is excellent. I think by all means you should celebrate with extravagance and sheer unadulterated MR-ness. How, exactly, that works I cannot say. But it's you're week, so whatever you think it means... it means. Yowza. I'm jealous.

Hey, I just noticed that your BACA idea was picked up by the Orlando Sentinel Parenting Blog. You're now in the mainstream press!
