Chloe, Noggin, and I have been on the road for almost three weeks now. So far we’ve given 16 talks in Missouri, Kansas, Wyoming, and South Dakota. Lots of driving, sharing stories, dog-petting, and laughing!

Libraries are awesome in any season, but SUMMER READING is always special! We are honored to be a part of so many exciting and creative summer reading programs. Thank you, librarians!

 

 

 

 

… ENJOYS SUMMER READING!

This morning Noggin had a difficult time staying awake during our Skype session with students at Meeteetse Branch Library in Wyoming. I imagine the poor dog thinks I’m just sitting on the floor (in front of the computer) talking to myself! She sees no reason to participate in such nonsense.

When I’m Skyping, Chloe always looks concerned for me…

Little do the pups know how much fun I have talking with the students. Their awesome questions make the hour fly by!

Noggin and I really enjoyed our afternoon at the Nassau BOCES in Westbury, NY. Thanks to Donna Rosenblum for inviting us. Because of their expert technology staff and the videoconferencing studio, we were able to connect with classrooms all over the state of New York! Plus, we had an informal meet-and-greet in the conference room and had a nice turn-out. It was fun meeting everyone and talking trail… and Noggin was pleased to be able to wander the room on her own, flopping over on her side in front of those she knew were just dying to rub her belly.

Noggin was in no hurry to leave, but we had to head east to be in place for tomorrow’s talk at the Hampton Library at 1 pm. See you there!

After giving school talks all week in Connecticut, we’re back on Long Island and loving it! I had no idea the beaches here were so beautiful. Chloe, Noggin, and I had the entire place to ourselves this afternoon. We have school talks tomorrow, but if you’re in the area on Saturday at 1 pm come visit us at the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton, NY.
