I have been running around all day feeling overwhelmed and unprepared for #NCTE15. My to-do list felt out of control until about twenty minutes ago when The Washington Post uploaded Kate DiCamillo's reflection on her time as the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. Kate's words calmed me. She reminded me to enjoy every moment and to take a break from working on presentations to read two chapters of Sharon Robinson's The Hero Two Doors Down. Isn't reading the biggest stress reliever? It is for me!
Now off you go to read Kate's essay. You're welcome! :)
