Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life Website

Those who read our June 2006 book, Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, may be interested in visiting the book's official website. True to the conversational style of her memoir, Rosenthal encourages readers to become engaged with the book online. Contribute a moon description, share your "purple flower moment," or receive a personal thank you from the author for reading the book.
