Odds and Ends from the Blogosphere

thanks to Jen and Miss erin for the news that Noel Streatfeld's Ballet Shoes will be made into a BBC movie. I *hope* that it is shown in the US - I love the book and introduced it to my daughter who also loved it!

And thanks to fuse#8 I can add another reason to not like the First Lady very much. She is poised to become a children's book author. While she WAS a school librarian and hence has a few more qualifications to write a children's book, say more than any other first lady, the idea of another celebrity book is just, well icky. Even worse, will be the fact that I am SURE that I will have parents asking me to buy it for the media center as soon as it is published.

And on a totally unrelated note, school starts tomorrow for my kids (and my students) and right now my 9 year old daughter is dancing around the house asking to go to bed and singing "I can't wait to go to school!" - I'm not sure how I ended up with this kid!

Yes - I also read that the first lady was writing a book - but hey, I say she's MUCH more qualified than Madonna!!! :)

Oh yes, I do agree about that!!! Someone gave my kids the whole set of books written by Madonna, so I will say, I am the proud owner of the hardbacks from Madonna!
