Here I go, breakin’ all-a the rules!

(the above quote is from a Buddy Holly song, and if you know it without googling it, we will be friends forever)

I know it’s not Monday, but gosh-darnit, this called for a post! This STARRED REVIEW from Booklist got me all teared up. Thanks, guys!

“Ozma has written a memoir as rich and revealing, witty and warm, confident and compassionate as works by people who may have been around a few more blocks, but who probably haven’t read as many books. Persuasive and influential, poignant and inspirational, Ozma’s exuberant paean to the joys and rewards of reading—and being read to—is a must-read treasure for parents, especially, and bibliophiles, certainly.” – Booklist, Starred Review

Shucks!

  3. Alice – Hope you recognize my name from the Booklist review. I adored the book (obviously.) Yours was such an important message and I hope it inspires parents and children everywhere to get their Streak on! All the best – Carol
