I was reading through my e-mail this morning and got that happy feeling I get when I see my Horn Book newsletter. The Horn Book magazine comes every two months full of writing about children’s literature and amazing book reviews. To tide me over in between issues, I read their newsletter that comes out more often.
This morning my excitement was even greater than usual when I scrolled down to find my dear friend Meg Medina’s latest book highlighted. Meg is one of those people who gives me warm fuzzies every time I think of her. I treated her daughter years and years ago and still consider her a friend despite the fact that we haven’t talked since we left Richmond nearly four years ago now. Thanks to Facebook and e-mail I feel like we are still somehow connected so I knew her book was coming out but had lost track of when.
I couldn’t be happier for Meg that her latest book is receiving attention from the ‘Big Wigs’. She is just one of those people who deserves good things to come her way. Tia Isa isn’t out yet so I can’t review it but if it’s even half as great as it’s author, it’s going to be wonderful.
