What Popular Toy Brands Teach Us About -

The other day I watched two full hours of My Little Pony. I am not ashamed. I repeat, I am not ashamed. If you write for kids or teens and you are no longer a kid or teen, do you make it a habit to watch what they watch?

Getting all gushy this snowy Monday morning because this post is about my top five favorite children's book of 2014. "What?" you cry in the dark. "Wasn't 2014 soooo five days ago?" Ahem, stop being a trender, okay? Truth is, I read far more non-fiction boring-titled novels in 2014.

Four Short Poems that will Change Your Life -

What happened to a little thing called poetry? Once upon a time, poetry was at the height of fashion. Men and women of class used it to impress each other with wit, to create mnemonic phrases from which to live by and others read volumes and volumes of the stuff to help describe the ...
