Kids and Teen Blog
Danielle and I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Toronto to meet with media. We met with loads of wonderful editors and bloggers.
I'll be back next week with a sneak peek of some of the books that everyone was really excited about but in the meantime (while I catch up on a week's worth of work) here are videos for two of my favorite picture books from the Spring List.
First up is Press Here by Herve Tullet- In the days where everything is an app, has it's own website, or has some kind of online component it is so refreshing to see an interactive book that is, well, just a book. Take it from a mama of a two year old who is addicted to puzzles on the iphone. Give them this book to play with and help reintroduce them to the magic that can be held between the pages of a book. Check out the video and you will understand why.
Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld- Whenever I mention the name Tom Lichtenheld to editors I almost always get squeals of delight and "Oh my goodness, he is the guy that illustrated Duck! Rabbit! I LOVE him!!!" Yes he is. And if you have a little one that is obsessed with trucks and diggers then Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site should find a home right next to Duck! Rabbit! on their bookshelf. Let's face it, what little one, male or female, isn't intrigued with trucks and diggers?
Back next week! Until then- Happy Reading!
