A Moment of Silence for Tomie DePaola, 1934-2020

I have a great love of books for children. Is there anything better than reading to a little one? A current favorite of mine and, more importantly, little Cora, is Pokko and the Drum, by Matthew Forsythe. When my own children were young, we read all of Tomie dePaola’s books. They’re wonderful —probably because the man himself was full of wonder.
