I am honored that author Jane Yolen read my blog post about going owling, sticky buns, and most importantly about her award winning book, Owl Moon.
Jane Yolen replied,
“In the end of course, fame and fortune don’t matter. It’s the child remembering your story with great fondness that is important. Only that.”
Yes, Jane. You are absolutely right. Your book did just that. I will continue to be a champion of giving children rich experiences through literature, so that they remember how it made them feel, and in turn become lifelong learners who grow kindness and goodness. Books open the world, especially great books like Owl Moon.
With thanks and gratitude,
