Here’s an actual blog round up, which I haven’t done in a while, but there was a minor flurry of activity last week.
I visited the St. Michael, Minnesota middle school last week and met a bunch of cool kids and a very cool teacher, Jill Foltz, who blogged about it better than I could. As usual I appreciated the kids telling me about what they like to do, and what they like to read. One thing I noticed is that easily half the kids, maybe more, were carrying recreational reads… from my buddy Carrie’s zombie apocalypse novel, to a baseball novel I’ve read, um, once or twice.
But Bertie is more of a star this week, outshining me in this interview by Sharon, and also appearing on the Friskies blog (you have to download the PDF newsletter at that URL to see a picture he took).
