Hi Jan,
Glad to have you as my friend! I am still getting familiar with the site, but am enjoying 'looking around.'
Comment by Jan Godown Annino on 1/3/2009 at 6:05 AM:
Thanks for your thoughtfulness in the offline note, too. Yup, a creative way to say the Island of Manhattan & ditto, same refers to all the boroughs.
The Lincoln Center site you mention & the one in the Bronx are each, lovely.

Are you still in FL or have you returned home to NY/NJ?

Thanks for the friendship

Plan a trip here when you are settled!
I'll give you my quick tour of literary sites,
all kid-friendly &
we have fun museums & a natural zoo..
Comment by Mary Ann Scott on 10/6/2008 at 8:18 AM:
Thanks for the welcome, Jan! And I'll be just an hour and a half away once I actually make the move. By the way, love the "ghost hair" reference!
Comment by Catherine A Gister on 3/13/2008 at 10:45 AM:
Thanks for the encouragement!
Comment by Marta Dorigo on 3/6/2008 at 9:17 AM:
Italian is a tricky language to learn! :-)
Thank you for the suggestion JG, I will surely take a look at the website. It would be wonderful - and I would be honoured - to give a talk about Italian children's literature! Marta
Comment by Dawn Matheson on 3/5/2008 at 8:39 AM:
Hi JG! Thanks for the comment! Yes, we are very fortunate to have Jodee Blanco as an advisor/judge. As a writer, you couldn't have a better mentor. Keep writing!
Comment by Angel Domínguez on 2/29/2008 at 6:06 AM:
Dear J.G.

Your Spanish-English is funny, I understand it very well and as we share our love for sea creatures, the communication will be better indeed.
Comment by Angel Domínguez on 2/29/2008 at 4:35 AM:
Please, change "eel grasses" for "seaweeds"... you see... my English is awful...
Comment by Angel Domínguez on 2/29/2008 at 4:31 AM:
Hi, JG,

Thanks for to invite me as friend.
Due to my love for the sea, and for the lot of books I did on the subject, I have a lot of drawings of fishes, cetaceans and eel grasses, etc... so, if you want some, let me know, please.
I wish you the best with your books.

Hi JG,
Thanks for your note. I wasn't really familiar with the Hollins creative writing program (though I've heard of it), so I just checked it out online. It looks excellent, and something I would enjoy taking part in as a speaker (and it's just down the road a tad!) I'd appreciate it if... more

Hi Brownie
I love your flamingoes! Good luck with your next book!

Am appreciating the comments & good questions.
Sanibel - In one of my previous books, Family Fun in Florida, I was able to mention one of my favorite nature sites, the J.N. "Ding" Darling Wildlife Sanctuary. Plus some other sites.

Thanks for your comments and I must say, I finally made it to Flordia last year (Sanibel Island) and the animals and plants were amazing! Have you written anything on that location in particular?
