I guess the deal on the links is that you have copy the code I give you into a text editor and change the curly quotes to straight quotes and then copy that into your html in your post. I am not sure why I paste in straight quotes and they get converted to curly quotes. […]

September 22nd, 2008 · Comments Off

Here’s a fun book for us to tour. The Raucous Royals, by Carlyn Beccia. Check her website out–it’s full of fun. Amazon says the book is for ages 4-8 but I’m thinking they might mean grades 4-8 because the humor in this book wouldn’t probably appeal to a four-year-old, I don’t think. Anyway, swing by […]
