Wonderful Winter was named an Amazon Editor’s Pick for Best Books of the Month: Nonfiction for Kids (November, 2016).

A CORRECTION: On pages 14–15 of Wonderful Winter, that big, beautiful animal seeing its breath in the cold is a bison, not a buffalo.

Leah Berger, an eagle-eyed librarian from Ohio, spotted the error right away and took the time to let me know. You can find out more about the differences here, but the short version is this: look at those horns. Bison have smaller, cow-like horns, while buffalo have big, sweeping horns. Thanks for setting me straight on the Bovidae family, Leah!

Wanna see some Goldstone juvenelia? I recently came across a rubber stamp epic (well, 8-page story) I created in Jr. High, called The Divine Quarrel.

TeachingBooks.net invited me to contribute to their collection of more than 1,600 authors and illustrators explaining how to pronounce their names. So here’s where you can hear me explain how to say Bruce Goldstone (my name’s hardly rocket science, but there are many other handy pronunciations at the site. I finally know how to say Jon Scieszka, which will be handy if I ever meet him.)

I want to give a big shout out to Mrs. Steppke’s second-grade class in Wautoma, Wisconsin. They recently spent a lot of time with my books, especially Ten Friends. They even had a Ten Friends Tea Party and made their pages for a marvelous book in which they all decided who they would invite if they could “ask ten friends to tea.” Thanks for being such great readers, mathematicians, and artists. Here’s to you, Alexander, Alexis, Ashley, Ava, Braelyan, Braydan, Breanne, Bryce, Josef, Kennedy, Lea, London, Madylyn, Melody, Sawyer, Sydney!
