Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge made the sad announcement last month that their beloved cocker spaniel Lupo passed away. He had been with their family for nine years.
Author Aby King has written a four-book series about Lupo. The first book came out in 2014 and is called "The Adventures of Lupo the Royal Dog: The Secret of Windsor Castle." Looks cute!
This is Mason, a kindergartner in Mansfield, Texas. According to his mom, Picture Day ended with an epic mom fail. But now it's just chalked up to one more crazy story for 2020. Look closely at the bottom left corner of Mason's picture. In the spot where his name should be, it says: I DON'T WANT THIS. That's because there was no spot on the order form to opt out of having a name printed on the photo. So Mason's mom thought she'd cleverly make that known by typing in those now infamous words. When 30 printed pictures showed up, everyone got a good laugh out of them.
Mason's mom perfectly summed up the experience with the hashtag: #if2020wasaschoolphoto

Discover how each figure of the Nativity can lead your family closer to Christ this Christmas season. This children's edition of Celebrating a Christ-Centered Christmas will guide you through seven meaningful traditions inspired by the Nativity setting. These simple experiences are not meant to add more to an already crowded holiday season but to offer something different. They will give your family an opportunity to escape from the frantic bustle of the Christmas season and spend time reflecting on the baby Jesus and the miracle of His birth.
This interactive book invites children to watch each figure approach the waiting manger and encourages them to ask what they might have done if they had been there on the night Jesus was born. Seven beautiful ornaments have been created to accompany the lesson each figure teaches. Displaying the ornaments throughout the Christmas holiday will remind your children of the lessons they are learning about the baby Jesus.

In late October, one of my students delivered this note with his homework. It made my day, and it's still making me smile.
When life threw Julie a curve ball and took away her singing voice, she forged ahead (with her daughter at her side) to share her voice in new, exciting, and meaningful ways. She's a children's author and has now started her own podcast--Julie's Library--on which she reads stories that she hopes will bring families together. And regarding the difficult times that we have found ourselves in this year, she shares some powerful wisdom from her mother and aunt -- this time of struggle and uncertainty will, in fact, have a beginning, a middle, and an end.

Keri Smith, creator of the mega-bestselling Wreck This Journal, now brings her imagination and inspiration to children with this picture book that explores the very active experience of reading.
What if there were a book that changed every time you read it?
Actually, every book does this. We are all part of the books we read, because our individual reactions, ideas, and emotions make the book whole, and these things are changing all the time. Keri Smith has helped millions of people free their creativity and find their own voice with her interactive books, and now she brings that sensibility to children and to the act of reading. This picture book is an invitation to honor your own vision and to welcome imperfection. Kids will discover that reading can engage all five senses, and that what they themselves bring to a book is an important contribution. (And of course they’ll be invited to do a bit of harmless “wrecking”!)
