My new, tiny sketchbook came in handy at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West a few days ago. If you're ever in Cody, Wyoming, don't miss this great museum!
Also, I finally added a new post to The Map & The Way.
And here's a great interview with Author/Illustrator, Jon Klassen, over at Art of the Picture Book. (They have lots of other wonderful interviews, too!)
Oh, and if you haven't visited Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast lately, go take a look! There's lots of great stuff there!
And just one more thing... There are lots of cool book reviews over at Design of the Picture Book. Check it out! :)

To enter, just leave a comment below (maybe you could mention the most recent book you read and loved - I'm always looking for book recommendations - or tell me about your favorite summer pastime).
Entry will be open through the end of this coming Friday (June 19th). Good luck and happy reading!

One of the things about living in an RV is that each new purchase has to be very carefully considered. There really isn't any spare storage space and having too much stuff around makes RV life feel sort of claustrophobic.
But, we've stopped at home in Colorado for a couple of weeks and we're reorganizing good ol' Daisy the motor home. We'll leave behind some things that we haven't been using or that are just taking up too much space. So, over the past few weeks, I've decided to take advantage of the situation and have splurged on some new books. Hooray for new books! There are still lots of books on my wish list, but for now I've started with these...
Rex Wrecks It! by Ben Clanton, published by Candlewick Press
Home by Carson Ellis, published by Candlewick Press
Quest by Aaron Becker, published by Candlewick Press
Wish by Matthew Cordell, published by Disney/Hyperion
To the Sea by Cale Atkinson, published by Disney/Hyperion
Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Pena and Christian Robinson, pub. by G.P. Putnam's Sons
and In Mary's Garden by Tina and Carson Kugler, published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
What new books are you reading lately? Any books I should get my hands on before we hit the road again?
