My birthday is on April 23rd.
I have figured out what you can get me.
I wear a size small.

Happy early birthday. Are you taking the day off just to enjoy yourself?

When the Giving Tree was first published, I reviewed it for our 25 branch library system. I rejected it with the note -- Let's call it "Let's Take from the Tree" and be done with it. Then I retired to have children.

I stopped by the local library branch after my child was born and discovered that it had been purchased by the library system. Because it was on the Required Reading Lists of the local Catholic schools. Being that those were the years when the Catholic church had a long list of books that children (and other people) were forbidden to read, the powers-that-be overruled my rejection of the book to give those kids at least something available that they were allowed to read.

(plus it was touted as such a good example to little girls about how mothers are supposed to give and give with no thought for themselves.) yuck.

Love his poetry books. Hate his picture books. Never have read his articles in playboy.
Hurrah for your t-shirt!

Love the shirt...but THANK YOU for leading me to the kick-ass shirt "I've always identified with Beezus"!!!! YES! Finally! All my oldest child angst over liking Beezus better than Ramona can now be given a voice! Huzzah! Dude, I'm SO wearing that to ALA (since that's the only place people will actually *get* it).
