SCBWI's Blueboard - A Message & Chat Board

Good review in Kirkus!

Discussion started on

Crossing my fingers and toes worked! Kirkus liked my soon-to-be-released children's book, Growing Friendships: A Kid's Guide to Making and Keeping Friends (Beyond Words/Simon & Schuster, for elementary school children and their parents).
