Beyond the Book Storytimes on Newbery-induced Hiatus until January

Regular readers may have noticed that posts on this blog have been dwindling in frequency, so I'm going to use my big excuse.  I'm chairing the Newbery Committee this year and am struggling to find time to post here.  Turns out I  can't do "beyond the book" stuff well because I have too many actual books that really have to be read and thought about and eventually voted on.   So I'm going to suspend posts from now until the end of January, when my Newbery work will be all done.  The Newbery stuff is fascinating, but a part of me is looking forward to the time when I get back to worrying about the things that truly matter in life:  puppets, props, and picture books.
