IRA’s Best Book!

Hello, everyone!

So many good books are made every single year. Isn’t that something? EVERY YEAR. With all the great books to choose from all the time, how do you narrow down your reading list? How do you plan which books to take on the plane to Hawaii or pack for the holidays at your grandmother’s house? How do you know which books to give to friends and family?

Fortunately, the “best of” lists for 2014 keep on coming. Everyone has one. In fact, I have one I will share soon. But the latest BEST BOOKS OF 2014 is a good one AND I am included!!

This list is from IRA. And not my friend Ira the iguana, either. (But isn’t that a coincidence?) This is from International Reading Association. They have chosen the best books of the year and I’m happy to say that CIRCLE, SQUARE, MOOSE is on the list.


This means your gift-giving, list-making, and packing just got a lot easier!

Thank you, IRA!!

See you next time!

A Review In The New York Times!

Hey there.  Ever heard of the NEW YORK TIMES?  I looked into it, and it seems to be a popular newspaper with many people. This, despite an absence of Moose.  However, this week, the New York Times DOES have a Moose in it—ME!!


CIRCLE, SQUARE, MOOSE is reviewed in the Sunday New York Times.  You can see the article by following the link above.

I am super happy, very honored, and…..I don’t know what my last emotion is.  Zebra says it’s called “humbled,” but I never heard of such a thing.
THANK YOU to the NYT for including MOOSE in your latest issue!

Happy reading to everyone!

My new book is out–CIRCLE, SQUARE, MOOSE. Have you seen it? If you like shapes, or me, or Zebra, or lots of fun–you need to grab a copy.

I feel so lucky to have so many people reading my book. I want to share some of the reviews with you. And you know the best part? Some of my reviews have a big, shiny STAR next to them. If you read the book, you will know just why A STAR is the perfect gift.

HELLO AGAIN! Did you miss me? Well, I missed YOU. So much so, that I have returned with a BRAND NEW BOOK! I am so excited!

Do you know much about shapes? For example, do you know what shape a banana is? (If so, let me know.) Do you know what a circle looks like? A square? Well, if you like shapes as much as I do, then this book is for you. It is called CIRCLE, SQUARE, MOOSE.

In this book, we learn a thing or two about shapes, and my good friend Zebra returns to….well, to cause trouble, really. But I won’t spoil anything for anyone. (Unlike Zebra.) I’ll let you read it and discover all the wonderful surprises inside. If you like my book, please let me know! And now that I’m back from vacation, I’ll be sure to write more often. Happy reading!
