At this point in the year, I am tired of holiday prep and excited for January and new things. The endings and beginnings of units of time (like a year, say) are hugely important. It turns out, beginnings and endings of cycles of time are temporal landmarks, special occasions and calendar events that "create numerous “fresh start” opportunities at the beginning of new cycles." I have come to like the end/beginning of the year temporal landmark more than I like Christmas, which carries a big burden of "BE JOYFUL!"
Thus, I am happy to be able to share the first Connecticut Children's Literature Calendar for the year 2020. Whatever is going on in your life this minute, remember that you have a brand spanking new year to look forward to in just four days.
