Happy 70th Birthday, Tomie dePaola!

Warmest birthday wishes to Children's Book Giant, Tomie dePaola as he celebrates his 70th birthday!

I just finished our book display of Tomie's books and we will be having a birthday party for him next Tuesday night as the theme of this month's Slumberland Express Pajama Storytime program. We have also been allowing kids to write Tomie special birthday notes, which we will send on to him later.

A man who creates such beautiful -- and accessible -- art deserves a beautiful year ahead!
