It is wonderful to see your website get the recognition! I continue to check in frequently to hear from other authors and to get recommendations for updating my children’s book collection. The greatest treasure I’ve find so far from your site is Bird, written by Zetta Elliott and illustrated by Shadra Strickland. It is a perfect example of the depth and complexity that can come from a picture book.

For people interested in other books about creating lifelong readers, I also recommend two thought-provoking titles: The Rights of the Reader by Daniel Pennac and Readicide: How Schools Are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It by Kelly Gallagher.
