Just heard the exciting news that TWO IS ENOUGH will appear Dec. 20th in The New York Times Book Review! The online version posted today:

"Families of two star in this smoothly rhyming trip through the seasons. The title serves also as a refrain, as we see four pairs enjoying each other’s exclusive company: a dad and daughter; dad and son; mom and daughter; and grandma and grandchild....Each sweetly illustrated page is just a glimpse of everyday life, but for children in two-person families surrounded by bigger clans, also a reminder of the immense love in their own homes, too."

TWO IS ENOUGH launched!

TWO IS ENOUGH is at last out in the world, walking around on its own TWO feet.  What a pleasure it was to share launch day (Nov. 15th) with the staff of Kids Ink, my neighborhood independent children's bookstore in Indianapolis, as well as picture book author Rebecca Kai Dotlich. 

My inspirations for TWO IS ENOUGH, Christine and her son Carter, were very hands-on in the celebration (Have you ever taken a 3-year-old to a bookstore or library? :).  What an honor to see their personal story lead to a book that celebrates the love of families and special pairs like them.

I also had the pleasure of signing books this past Saturday at the Indiana Historical Society's annual Holiday Author Fair, alongside more than 70 authors and 80 Christmas trees.  A festive occasion indeed!
