On the same page.

These are wonderful, true words, Audrey. My childhood was filled with words read aloud, and we raised our daughter in the same way. Now that we're empty-nesters, we haven't kept it up and I miss it. In the coming school year, I plan to volunteer to be either a reader, listener, or both with elementary children.

I'm so glad I learned it from you Carol. Like you were sitting here next to me. . . you are in every sense. I'm more determined than ever to get myself set up to do some recording of reading aloud. I will begin with her work. . . and some W.H. Hudson too. This will give you a sense of Hudson (it is my sign-off on all my emails):

The art of printing has done much to dull our literary perceptions.
Words have a double virtue - that which resides in the sense of sight
and that which resides in the sound.
We miss much of the charm if the eye is made to do duty also for the ear.
The words, bereft of their vocal force, are but half alive on the printed page.
The silent perusal of the printed page will leave one of its principal secrets unsurprised.
As much as possible, therefore, we should make it a practice to read aloud!

You must be feeling true grief, Audrey, and I'm sorry to have been the person who broke the news to you, perhaps too abruptly, especially at this time. And having had the good fortune to meet her gives you an added personal connection. Her obituary below is a testament to the impact her life and work had on individuals, the larger community, and the earth. I'm sorry for your loss, which I now know is a loss to all.

Berkeleyborn

Oh my, she helped me raise my children. . . they are the people they are (particularly my last two . . . my boys) because of her.

NO! Oh my, this is a great loss. I feel like she's been a companion for the last 40 years.

I just looked up Byrd Baylor and saw that she died last month on my daughter's birthday, June 16, at age 97. It's clear that her life was not only long but very full and giving. I'm ordering some books for myself and others. I see that in addition to Tom Bahti and Peter Parnall, whose work looks familiar to me, but whose names are not, Garth Williams, a favorite illustrator of mine, illustrated one of her books.

Berkeleyborn

OK Carol, when I wrote that comment re Byrd Baylor I couldn't remember whether I had already brought her to your attention and I was too tired to search comments (must have been Eleanor). I have everything she's written (most illusrated by Peter Parnell) and they are my favorite read alouds. Eleanor ordered several. All in paperback now. . . even though you will find library discards among used you might order. Begin with ". . .Celebrations" and order also "Everybody Needs a Rock", "The Other Way to Listen" and "Your Own Best Secret Place" That's a good beginning. My son who is 40 grew up with them, and I returned from a national librarians' conference excited to tell him that I had met "Byrd Baylor" (and she signed a couple of book for him) that that "SHE is a little old woman. . . perhaps 5'2" tall with long straight white hair." Though we had never talked about the author, that was not how either of us had imagined.

I'm so glad you liked it, Mischa! I appreciate your commenting. Have a great rest if your day!

Magical, tfp.

Wow, Berkeleyborn, I just did a search of "I'm In Charge of Celebrations," and it looks like we all need that book. I agree that Lisa captured a very special event. Thanks for the intro to Byrd Baylor. It seems he wrote lots of other intriguing children's books, too. I'll see that Lisa gets a copy.

Berkeleyborn

Did Lisa write the children's picture book - "I'm In Charge of Celebrations"? She needs a copy. . .the day she saw this, needed to be remembered and celebrated every year. . . "so much better than those days they give off from school for."
