Since I found myself distracted by my beloved fiction novels, I thought I’d give a rundown of what I’m reading. Oh, and I figured I’d give you a list of what George has on his reading agenda as well.
When you go to a children’s book conference, you learn about great children’s books and how they’re made. I thought I’d give you a brief rundown of my new favorites.
Ever wondered where great books are born? Well, after my weekend in Miami, I have your answer.
I specifically love giving books for kids’ birthdays. Goodness knows, we go to enough themed parties these days, and books are an easy, but thoughtful gift. Plus, with kids’ books, you never know if they’ll be that special book the child loves and reads to his or her children some day. I love that idea.
One day in our living room, I found myself studying our shelf of library books (I keep them separate from our personal books Mama would go mad looking for lost library books). I noticed something fun and clever.
I realize most children’s books have some kind of moral, but I can appreciate those that teach just for teaching’s sake. I truly appreciate authors who put effort into the education and find more creative examples than “A for Apple.”
