Great BIG hugs and gratitude go out to Patricia Tilton of Children’s Books Heal for the beautiful book review. I have been following Patricia’s book blog for several years since we met at a summer picture book writers workshop at SUNY at Stony Brook/Southampton University. Patricia impressed me with her passion and depth of children’s literature knowledge. Her weekly blog reviews a variety of children’s lit genres with thoughtful honesty. I am honored and humbled by her kind attention and positive plug.
I urge Everyone to take a look at Children’s Book Heal. It is a delightful site and you are bound to find your next read.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by.
Daily Bread is set in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, 1911. The story follows nine-year-old Lily, an American-born child of Sicilian immigrants, who wants to prove she is not a little kid. To be a big kid in the crowded tenement neighborhoods, she must tackle bigotry, bullies, disasters, dotty bakers, and learn to cross the street by herself.
Hope you are hungry. Becoming America’s Food Stories recalls the tales that have been told around my family’s dinner table. The histories explain the motivations over bowls of macaroni, antics play out while slurping soup, and laughter echoes throughout the dining room. Pull up a seat. There’s always room.
