Every time I go to ALA I feel like a kid in a candy store. Where else in the world can you meet your favorite librarians, educators, editors, and publishers; bump into Dan Santat in the hallway; and hear your child scream with delight, “Mo Willems is HERE! HE’S HERE!!!”
Below are a few photographic highlights from this year’s INCREDIBLE conference.
My super excited boys with their super cool exhibitor badges.

Lori Degman’s adorable new book. Norbert is one radiant, terrific pig.
A well-prepared librarian!
As my favorite spider might say, ALA is some conference. I can hardly wait for next year. Thank you, ALA!
