The Magic of Books
My daughter had her first book signing this week. Mary Pope Osborne was in town and my daughter just started reading them in Kindergarden this year.
She was so excited and Mary was funny getting all the kids engaged. Over 500 people showed up in a VERY small bookstore.
Watching her made me smile.
