A rapt audience tonight! You know, I think one of the things I like best about our monthly Starbucks readings (in addition to the wonderful kids who turn out and respond to our stories, of course) is sitting all comfy on the floor on Suzie's lovely soft quilts. Several kids come in and just lie down. Isn't that the perfect way to listen to a story? There are various ways to shut out a noisy world, espresso machines notwithstanding, and going down below table level is incredibly effective. The adult chatter passes overhead, and we feel like we're getting away with something!
Do check out the lovely illustrations posted in the Kids' Gallery on my site: www.casiehermansson.com . And thanks to all in attendance!
