    The Joy of Planning was a wonderful book – good for you that you’ve read it through and will use it to help plan the year ahead! Penny From Heaven sounds interesting.

    I enoyed the Ibbotson a lot, and its been a big hit with my students. I may have to look at the planning book, since I only get about three minutes for my library lessons.

    I haven’t read any Nancy Clancy titles yet, but I’ve read lots of good things about it. I’m intrigued by Penny from Heaven – will be on the lookout for that one. 🙂
