We are moving into the new office space slowly but surely. As I organized, cleaned and recycled things, I came across this picture.

It was the day I met Tomie DePaola at The Book Beat in Southfield, Michigan.

Tomie DePaola is, hands down, one of my favorite children’s book author. Because of Tomie, we have excellent books to teach our children beautiful life lessons. Here are a few of my favorites:

Oliver Button is a Sissy, Strega Nona, The Art Lesson and Now One Foot, Now The Other (this book makes me cry everytime I read it!)

Check out Tomie and his books, you won’t be disappointed!
