21st Century Storytelling: Reading in the Snow! Yes, Reading in the snow.

Eat your heart out, Gwyneth Paltrow!

I dare Gwyneth to remake this video >>>GLEE – \”Umbrella/Singin\’ In the Rain\”, but instead of rain, make it a snowstorm – because that’s ALL we seem to be having around these parts.  Check out my friend down there.

Elizabeth Mason, Senior Publicist at Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group, sent me this adorable picture and gave me permission to use it. (Also saw it first at Robin’s Roundup, then – happily – saw it in my mailbox.)

The book being devoured by a fourth grader from Weston, MA in his “snow nook” is Barbara O’Connor’s HOW TO STEAL A DOG (Farrar Strauss Giroux Books for Young Readers, 2009), winner of the William Allen White Children’s Book Award.
