Post-Candy Meltdown picture book roundup - AUTUMN 2015 - Wow, I am finally reclaiming my brain. For about two, maybe three months I have literally not had on
Wow, I am finally reclaiming my brain. For about two, maybe three months I have literally not had one unclaimed hour. Since September, I have co-hosted one conference, facilitated at another, spoken at a third - IN EGYPT - and presented at two events. And written three columns for the Baltimore Sun. You should see my house. But the smoke is clearing and I am getting my feet back under me. Today I finally put away all the Sharpies and Post-Its we ...

Sometimes we read books, sometimes they're just scenery. Opened my email this morning to find an unusual year-end list from Kirkus: the Most Overlooked Books of 2015. I like that. That list made me think. Usually this time of year I have no time for thinking. Even as the holiday BS is winding down, I'm usually busy reading hard and arguing loudly as a judge in the Cybils Awards. The Cybils are publicly nominated, with the finalists and winner agr...

Mary Cassatt: Extraordinary Impressionist Painter by Barbara Herkert and Gabi Swiatkowska - review
A picture book biography is more than the product of an author. You could safely say that the responsibility for its appeal is shared by the author, the illustrator, and the subject, especially when the subject is herself an artist. If you think of the recent picture book bio of Anna Pavlova, Swan: The Life and Dance of Anna Pavlova , you quickly realize that some people will pick it up because it's about a marvelous ballerina, some will snatch i...

Teen lit that talks back to the canon: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Yes yes, I know. I am the last children's lit professional on the planet to have read this book. You've all read it, and you've all loved it, and I am late to the Eleanor & Park Party. Oh my god. Think of it -- that would be the funniest party. We'd all have to wear plaid flannel and band t-shirts and stand around looking at the floor until we each stormed out of the room in tears. It would be like the parties at my college radio station in the 8...

Super summer picture books 2015 - a whole ton of animals and one polite little girl
Bunnies! Bears! A llama, a hamster, a couple of apes and holy crap I hope I am never face to face with a wolffish! And in the end, a little girl who just wants a giraffe for her birthday. Enjoy! from 8: An Animal Alphabet by Elisha Cooper. If I end up with an iguana tattoo, you can blame this artist. Those Pesky Rabbits by Ciara Flood Just once I'd like to see a picture book about a grumpy old solitary fella who, when his cheerful new neighbors m...
