I’m packing my suitcase for a big trip to Texas. I’ll be speaking at schools in and around Pearland. That’s near Houston.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had a Texas school visit and I’m always looking forward to going there. I always have such a good time. My Texas friends know how to have a good time. I love Texas barbecue. And nobody loves books more than Texas librarians and Texas kids.
I’m also looking forward to finally get together with my friend Anita Phipps. Anita is the librarian at Marek School. She’s going to pick me up at the airport. We’ll have a lot to talk about. Anita has been trying to get me to her district for years. I’m going to do my best to make her look good.
