  1. I have The Bright Side of Disaster on my shelf waiting to be read, so I’m happy to see you loved it! So far I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Katherine Center. Stay safe, well, and happy reading!

  2. You are doing so well with the range of challenges! I have accepted that I am not a challenges person, but I really wish I were, because they bring such a range of titles with them. Nice work!

  3. I participated in the same picture book posts that you did, but was only able to check out 20 picture books before the library shut down, but I did enjoy reading each post and seeing the list of mentor texts.

    • I was ordering books before March so I had quite a few on hand once the shutdown. Now our libraries are closed til May 19th. ReFoReMo has been great every year it’s been running. Lots of valuable info.
