Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Well, I can’t write about dunderheads, like Tom Emmer, Michele Bachmann and Gregg Steinhafel all the time. Sometimes I must write about the wonderful people; and Amy Krouse Rosenthal is certainly won wonderful won of them (as I put it – because it’s the way she might do it).

I’ve written here before about Amy…

…but, Amy is a constantly evolving wonder and it’s difficult to keep up with her and what she’s writing or filming – or just plain doing – next. I’ve never – in all these lonnnng years met anyone like her. Is it enough to say she’s creative? No, it’s not nearly enough. You must add that she’s delightfully and ingeniously creative. As a communicator, she may be the best I’ve ever encountered. If you don’t know about Amy Krouse Rosenthal, you simply must, must, must!

The latest extraordinary, entrepreneurial adventure of Amy Krouse Rosenthal is the Mending Machine. New Yorkers are going crazy looking for this hot new item. And just below is a beautiful video about the Mending Machine that you must watch.

I hope it took your breath away, as it did mine.

Then, if you have a hankering to learn just a little more about this wonderful woman, go to this blog, Watch. Connect. Read. (Exploring Children’s Literature through Book Trailers). Your heart will soar as you get to know her. There are four or five videos on this blog that will allow you to get some of the same feelings about Amy that I have.

Amy has taught me an awful lot about being a better person. I feel her impact on my life nearly every day. Her life’s theme is beckoning lovely! Because of her, I try to surprise someone every day with little acts of unexpected and joyful generosity. I suggest to people that they try to raise their kids on the idea of beckoning lovely! What a way to go!

Thanks again, Amy, for all these new and wonderful ideas. Keep on keeping on, girl!

And, I mustn’t ever forget that it was my daughter, Erika, who introduced me to Amy Krouse Rosenthal. Her children know all about Amy and they feel about her as I do. I’m a 70+ year old crotchety old coot, but Amy makes me feel like a kid.
