“Zachary Z. Packrat…

…and His Amazing Collections” by my very talented friend Brooke Bessesen and illustrated by Jenny Campbell:


This book achieves the near impossible by getting Superbaby to sit quietly for long periods of time! We both love the humorous rhyming text and Superbaby likes when Zachary dusts his collection of “poos.”

Look Who Lives in the Ocean!

One of Superbaby’s favorite books, written and illustrated by my very talented friend Brooke Bessessen:


I love the rhyming text, “fascinating facts” and gorgeous pictures created with colorful fabrics! Read reviews here: http://www.amazon.com/Look-Who-Lives-Ocean-Splashing/dp/1932082824/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1250882568&sr=8-1

Best. Cartoon. Ever.

I caught an of episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender on TV recently and was instantly hooked! I just can’t get enough of the lovable characters, Asian mysticism, humor, martial arts and Fantastic Plot. If you love anime, philosophy or just good writing you will dig this show!
