Meaghan at The Decorated Cookie made some chocolate bee pops in honor of Zinnia and the Bees a while back! And since spring is in the air and the bees are buzzing, I wanted to share them with you now.

She and I have collaborated before for This Picture Book Life (here and here) when she made adorable treats to pair with kids’ books. So it’s especially fun that she did the same for my book! A bi...

Linda Urban
“I told Dad about yesterday...I told him how I made all those mistakes.
'But you kept on playing?' Dad said. His eyes got wide when he said it. I could tell he was proud.
'Everybody does,' I said. 'You can't just get up and walk away every time you mess up. You'd never get anywhere.”
Linda Urban, A Crooked Kind of Perfect

Rebecca Stead
“Mom says each of us has a veil between ourselves and the rest of the world, like a bride wears on her wedding day, except this kind of veil is invisible. We walk around happily with these invisible veils hanging down over our faces. The world is kind of blurry, and we like it that way. But sometimes our veils are pushed away for a few moments, like there's a wind blowing it from our faces. And when the veil lifts, we can see the world as it really is, just for those few seconds before it settles down again. We see all the beauty, and cruelty, and sadness, and love. But mostly we are happy not to. Some people learn to lift the veil themselves. Then they don't have to depend on the wind anymore.”
Rebecca Stead, When You Reach Me

Hannah Barnaby
“She was careful with her apple tree. She did not ask too much of it.”
Hannah Barnaby, Wonder Show

Kevin Henkes
“Today was a difficult day. Tomorrow will be better”
Kevin Henkes, Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse
