I’ve been a fan of Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s picture books for years. I have many favorites, but Little Hoot was the book that caused me to take notice of Amy and read all the books she wrote. I’ve been inspired by her clever, humorous, touching stories.
I didn’t know Amy personally, but was saddened to hear she passed away today from ovarian cancer. This devestating cancer took my mom’s life in 2011. I wish I had more time with my mom, and I wish Amy’s loved ones had more time with her. It’s heartbreaking to lose someone too soon.
