We've made it! Summer has arrived and soon the schools will be closed. Children and teachers everywhere have earned a well-deserved holiday.
As for me, now that school visits have wound down for the year, I hope to find a little quiet writing time and finish a manuscript that's been patiently waiting.
Also in the plans, is a short family holiday by the ocean. I hope to see a lovely flock of sandpipers like these as I walk along the beach.
Thank you to Karen Reczuch for this wonderful illustration from our book, West Coast Wild: A Nature Alphabet.
Have a safe and happy summer! See you in the fall.
