New Addition to the Focus Group!

img_79341Lynn: I am pleased to announce the arrival of the most beautiful baby ever and a new reading guinea pig – oops – I mean an addition to our book testing focus group. Henry Rowan arrived Saturday morning, 8 pounds 8 ounces, the first child of my oldest son and his wonderful wife. So far he is just sleeping and eating but I have a bag of books all packed to read to him when we go back to help the new parents in a few days. The twins can’t wait to meet Henry and they’ve gathered a collection of their favorite board books to get Henry started img_7914on his career with Bookends!

Cindy: Oh, good. More slave labor. Does that mean I can take a nap and let the growing Focus Group take over for a few days? Seriously, congratulations, Nana, and welcome, Henry!
