surprise in the mail

I stopped by my mailbox after work and pulled out a package that’d been wedged in among the bills, coupons, and previous homeowner’s American Girl doll catalogs.

Growing Up with Tamales

My first kids’ book! Growing Up with Tamales. It’s way, way more beautiful than I was expecting, thanks mainly to April Ward, who illustrated it. Seriously, I almost cried when I saw it. Then, I almost cried again when my ten-year-old son read it aloud to me.

Go to my Flickr to see more of the book. Or, better yet, go to Amazon to pre-order it.
