Because in fairy tales, things always come in threes, don't they?
1) Awesome. A class in Georgia makes commercials for books, including mine. Haven't seen the finished pitch yet, but I want to!
2) The Statue of Liberty's crown may re-open, and if so, you can climb all the way to the top again (past those nostrils) just like Rapunzel did with her dad.
3) Oh. My. Word. Miss Erin's photos: Real Life Fairy Tales
Whoops! Four things!
4) This fab post (and book list, including Letters From Rapunzel) at Unwrapping the Gifted about bibliotherapy with gifted children.
Eep. Just thought of another. Five!
5) Link Jules sent me: "Self-Rescuing Princess" T-shirt at ThinkGeek
Eek. Okay. There are six.
6) Amy Planchak Graves at ayuddha.net is starting a Mental Health in Children's Literature Project, which she describes as "the modern/enhanced equivalent of an annotated bibliography" listing books that deal in a literary, non-didactic way about mental health issues. Yes, that would include Letters From Rapunzel. I'll link as soon as it's up and running, but for now, check out more about Amy here.
Okay, that's it. I can't count, and I'm done.
(Except to say that it's been more than two years since Letters From Rapunzel came out, and it's exciting as an author to see readers, classes, librarians, and teachers still discovering it and using it in fantastic, creative ways. Yayohyayohyay!)
That is all.
