November is… Picture Book Month

1 Nov

PBMBADGE-AMBASSADOR-FBAll this month, I’ll be sharing my picture book love on my blog as part of Picture Book Month! I’ll be highlighting a different book each day that matches that day’s theme according to the 2017 Calendar and I’ll be sharing the link to each author/illiustrator’s essays on why picture books are important. These essays make for great reading each day and it’s fun to see the similarities and differences each person writes about. Check out the calendar below to get a sneak preview of this year’s themes and get ready to share some awesome picture books!



Weekend Plans – Princeton Children’s Book Festival

23 Sep

092317CBFSavedate3I’m hanging out at the Princeton Children’s Book Festival this weekend with a TON of authors, illustrators and book lovers! I’ve got Christmas and birthday gifts checked off my list for the next year or two for all the awesome kiddos in my life and I couldn’t leave without adding a few titles to my personal library! If you’re in the Princeton area, check out this awesome event!

Mark Your Calendars: National Book Festival

23 Aug


The National Book Festival is a really cool experience! I’ve been a few times when it was held on the National Mall, (never at the Convention Center) and it’s a great place to celebrate books, authors, illustrators and meet other booklovers like yourself.

The National Book Festival brings authors and illustrators to the stage, book sales and autographing areas and special activities just for kids. It’s a great event to attend as a family to show kids how important reading is, plus how cool is it to be able to have your favorite book signed by the author? It’s definitely a memory a child will cherish forever. With authors like Kwame Alexander, Kate DiCamillo Gene Luen Yang, Angie Thomas and so many more, I’m bummed that I won’t be there this year. But, if you’ve got the time, take it from me, you’ve got to experience this great festival.

The best part is the Festival is free for everyone and will be held on Saturday, September 2, 2019 from 8:30am – 7:30pm. Check out the website for schedule information and more!

I was able to attend the Princeton Childrren’s Book Festival last year and it was so much fun! Tents of children’s book authors and illustrators and books as far as the eye can see. And the best part? People everywhere excited about children’s literature.

I love that Brian Biggs designed the poster this year as I just recently reviewed is Tinyville Town books and fell in love with the fun stories and diverse characters. You can check out my review of Tinyville Town. Take a look at the Princeton Book Festival website to see the list of authors and illustrators attending this year. So if you live in the Princeton, New Jersey area, this is a must-visit festival if you want to meet tons of great authors and illustrators, get books signed and have an awesome day.
