    Hi Jennifer,
    How is it going in California? Are you married now? We miss you a lot but hope you are doing well. I am almost halfway through the program now at Dominican (this semester I am taking Internet Fundamentals and Design–we have to create a website-UGH!!!) Anyway, you look really cute in this picture. Maybe you can come visit us sometime.
    Anne :O)

    Try the book – The Sound of Storytime by Tiara Dixon. I love this book!!
    The music CD is wonderful and full of kid friendly songs.

    Hi Jennifer,
    We would love to see you do a storytime at our Wheaton, IL library. They have a great program there and I think they would be especially interested in hearing from an author.
