OOTW Blog Tour, Day 3: PaperTigers and Asia in the Heart, World on the Mind

Two virtual stops today for the tree, the boy, the road, and me:

PaperTigers, a Pacific Rim Voices project speaking about multicultural books for young readers, world literacy, and more.

Asia in the Heart, World on the Mind: Tarie blogs from Quezon City, in the Philippines and reaches across the world with her comments on all things Asian in children's literature, one book at a time.

Related to craft, yesterday I spoke at the Sandberg Literacy Institute in Toledo OH, and stayed in a handcrafted timber-frame guest house belonging to neighbors of Dr. Susanna Hapgood, Asst. Professor in the Dept. of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Toledo, and my kind host on this trip.

Look at the care and love that went into building this place.

Story should be crafted with no less care.


  1. It was and is, Paula, a beautiful place. It was like having my own personal retreat space for a day.
