All day I've been thinking about the people of Haiti who are surely suffering in the wake of yesterday's earthquake. It serves as a good reminder to support the Red Cross. It also makes me think of Tracy Kidder's amazing book Mountains Beyond Mountains about Dr. Paul Farmer and the work he does in Haiti. It is a wonderfully written and inspiring book. It's a book about an infectious disease specialist and Harvard professor which I think about often. I recommend it and give it as a gift frequently. Let's all hug the people we love and be grateful for our safety today.

Hi Christine, I was wondering how one can approach you to send you children's books to review. I'm the founder of and we currently have 50 children's books and growing. They are interactive and animated as well, I think you will enjoy. I would be honored to give you free access to all the stories for your review. Please email me at if possible, thanks so much.
