My Take:

It was so much fun leading this workshop and I can't wait for this Saturday. I have always been an avid reader and participating in this upcoming event in honor of National Library Month is right up my alley!

And not that I'm dropping hints or anything, but stay tuned I am cooking up something special for May my butterflies!

Readers Sound Off: Is there a location near you participating? Which demo did YOU RSVP for? What is your favorite book? What is your child's favorite book?
