Book It! – Curiouser & Curiouser

Another month gone. Can you believe the year is a quarter of the way through? Lots has happened this month. I’m an aunt (again).  My sister had her first baby, early in the month, and it seems to have put me on a children’s literature kick. I have to admit it was fun to read…
