Best of the Book Nook: The Mother's Guide to the Meaning of Life, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal


In 2002 when I interviewed Amy Krouse Rosenthal she was just beginning her meteoric rise to become the best-selling author of memoirs and over 30 children's books over the next 15 years. Amy became a much beloved writer. She died in 2017.
