Thanks for the memories, Barbara Park

juneWe have lost one of the great children’s authors this month, Barbara Park. One of the many favorites she wrote was about the many adventures of Junie B. Jones. Park won numerous awards, including several Children’s Choice Awards.

Park once said some people measure the value of a children’s book in terms of morals lessons it tries to impose or role models it depicts, but she did not agree. In the many remembrance posts the one that fit the best was “As Junie would say, I have sad in me.”
