About Me (and the Title)
No, I’m not from Australia. In fact, I've never even been to Australia. I'm a born-and-bred New Yorker who still lives in Manhattan. I took this blog's title from one of my favorite picture books, the incomparable Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. I'm a library school drop-out and recently left my legal job and am now considering returning to library school. I have two daughters, ages
5.5 6 7 12 and 3 3.5 4.5 9.5. I’ve had had so much fun discovering new children's books and rediscovering old favorites with them that I wanted to share my finds. Hopefully you'll reciprocate; I can't wait to add more favorites to my list. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
