In Mary's Garden by Tina Kugler
"A really lovely picture book about local folk artist Mary Nohl. Unlike a lot of non-fiction books, this one would make a good read aloud for a family program and would pair really well with a craft. "

While I didn't find this book as compelling as the first, it was still fun. There are two mysteries here, a murder and a kidnapping, and they both have unusual solutions. Candida, the child who is kidnapped, is a pretty great character, and I loved r ...more

Treasure Island!!! by Sara Levine
"This is a tricky book. I initially heard about it on NPR during one of Nancy Pearl's pieces. I really enjoyed it, but I think if I had read it any earlier I would have absolutely hated it. The narrator is so self-absorbed, but her obsession with T..." Read more of this review »

“I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

“We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.”
