In Memory of Sid Fleischman

Make no mistake about it. Angels in heaven are smiling more these days now that Sid Fleischman is among them. Attesting to the theory that humor adds length to our lives, Sid celebrated his 90th birthday before he moved to a more celestial setting than sunny California.

Some people leave the world a better place. Sid left it a happier place.

You'll find a list of his books on his website.


Read each one for the first time or again

and smile.


  1. Oh, Joan. I came to your blog to contact you and I see this sad news. We have indeed lost someone who could connect to the child within us all.

    Your and my friend, Ann Dalton, of Black Swan told me to look you up and I'm glad that I did. I have several blogs too on blogspot; I'm known as the Literacy Ambassador. You can visit me at www.readingisforeveryone.org

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Cathy. I will look for your blog. Best of luck with the cause you champion.We need more like you.
