Those who know me know I’m a sucker for a beautifully-conjured sense of place. My heart broke to see #NotreDame in flames, so this week’s wish is for stories that conjure the places, large and small, famous and not, that we each hold dear. #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

Remember #FeelGoodFriday for the first of the month? Well last week it didn’t happen - April Fool’s! So instead, today I’m sharing a story about a teacher wearing a dress covered in her students’ doodles. #picturebook anyone? #PBchat #MSWL

"How used they keep themselves contented/Before this monster was invented?/... Don't you know?/We'll say it very loud and slow: THEY..USED...TO...READ!" Happy
#NationalPoetryMonth, and may my kids' brains not rot from looking at screens!

In commemoration of the 51st anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination this week, I’d love to see more kids books that preserve his incredible legacy. #socialjustice, nonfiction #activism that inspires kids of all ages. #WishlistWednesday #MSWL

Between the third grader winning his first basketball tournament and husband obsessing over the NCAA, #MarchMadness is here. I look forward to some manuscript madness as we kick off #PBParty. The search for my final 4 is on! #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

"Winter will pass, the days will lengthen, the ice will melt in the pasture pond," wrote E.B. White. Feeling renewed and reinvigorated to take on all those spring submissions coming out of hibernation… #MSWL #WishlistWednesday #SpringTime

While I’m more partial to (keylime and apple) pie than pi, I sure do love a fun math book that might have had me loving math more as a kid. In honor of Pi Day tomorrow, I'd love something like BEDTIME MATH or for MG like MISCALCULATIONS OF LIGHTNING GIRL #WishlistWednesday #MSWL

In the spirit of #WomensHistoryMonth I’m exercising this week to Brave Not Perfect by @reshmasaujani. Her journey from finance to an attempt at politics to founding @GirlsWhoCode is so empowering. Would love to see more NF like this for young readers! #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

To kick off the First #FeelGoodFriday: 11-Year-old Girl Has Been Granting the Simple Wishes of Nursing Home Patients! This would be a sweet MG book too wouldn't it? #MSWL #intergenerational @Ludington this reminds me of your grandparents event Sunday! goodnewsnetwork.org/11-year-old-gi…

"To all of the nerdy girls out there who hide behind their sketchbooks—don't be afraid to tell your stories to the world!" Calling all sketchers, doodlers, and artists: I’d love to work with you on your #kidlitart! #WishlistWednesday #MSWL youtu.be/IBsLirAbfNw?t=…

It’s a full-on snow day here in Byn Mawr. Reminds me of the nor’easter that forced kids to stay the night at schools back in November…say, wouldn’t that be a fun premise for an MG book? My third grader dreams of it #wishlistWednesday #MSWL abcn.ws/2FpxPsj via @ABC News

Everyone’s buzzing about THEPROM Broadway musical: a lesbian couple fights to go the prom with the help of some Broadway performers. MS Universe for Valentine’s Eve: I ❤️a YA novel with the same inclusive spirit and hilarious fun and fabulousity! #WishlistWednesday #MSWL

I've been reading THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT and realized how few kids' books there are about chess. Then today I read that on this day in history in 1994 "Peter Leko became the world's youngest-ever grand master in chess." Wouldn't this be a fascinating MG novel! #MSWL #WednesdayWishes

Anyone else loving the guilty pleasure TEACHERS on TVLAND? Would love to see some of that dark comedy in YA #MSWL
