Hail the Ambassador!

Congratulations to Katherine Patterson, who's succeeding Jon Scieszka as our next Ambassador for Children's Literature. Those are big shoes to fill, but check out this recent article from the New York Times.
The main advice she’ll be giving adults: Read aloud to your children. “You can read out loud, and if you’re exhausted or crying so hard because you know that Charlotte is going to die in the next chapter,” she said, “you can turn it over to the kid to read the next part.” (That’s “Charlotte’s Web,” she’s talking about, of course.)
Already she's off to a good start.
