Blog Appearances

As the Eraser Burns
As a former member of the MD/DE/WV region of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, I was happy to feature Picture Book Idea Month and Picture Book Month in a guest post on the region's blog. Both are annual online events to celebrate picture books and inspire picture book writers throughout the month of November.

Book to Boogie
I am extremely happy to have organized this monthly column for the Library as Incubator Project. Each month a different blogger shared her ideas for pairing picture books with dance and movement activities for library story time.

Classroom Talk
Founded by long-time educator Maggie Cary, Classroom Talk is a resource for families with questions about parenting and school issues. As a guest blogger on the site, I offer a synopsis of three picture books with exceptional use of rhythm and rhyme, which are important tools for early literacy.

Dance Advantage
This comprehensive resource, developed by dancer and writer Nichelle Strzepek, provides dance students, teachers, and parents with the information they need to excel in all aspects of dance education. I was honored to write a guest post about the diversity of dance picture books in 2010, a picture book year-in-review post for 2011, and a post about four of my favorite Nutcracker picture books in 2012.

Living Barefoot
I've collaborated with independent publisher Barefoot Books a few times on my blog and am a long-time fan of their books. I was thrilled when they asked dance educator Maria Hanley and I to be guests on their popular blog, where we give some practical tips on incorporating movement into reading time at home.

Maria's Movers
Dem Bones is a picture book that helps teach anatomy in a lively and creative way. My guest post on Maria's Movers explores how the book can be incorporated into dance classes for both younger and older children. Although a good choice for any time of year, Dem Bones might be especially fun to read at Halloween.
