For those of you who are wondering where the posts went--- I had the draft of a post ready to go in January. Then, my mom passed away two days before the end of 2020. I didn't want to celebrate the new year, or anything else.
Those of you who use my blog to help find book suggestions, here are a few links to other blogs I personally refer to that have helped to get the word out about fantastic new picture books while I was on hiatus.
Susanna Leonard Hill's Perfect Picture Books: https://susannahill.com/for-teachers-and-parents/perfect-picture-books/
Kirsten W. Larson's Books for Curious Readers on IG and Youtube: https://kirsten-w-larson.com/2020/07/27/youtube-ig-tv-book-reviews/

I haven't been totally absent from the writing world. I've been drafting and writing shorter pieces. Some for "work" and some just for my own fun. Amanda Davis' #haikufromtwo Storystorm challenge is one example of the fun writing. (Select two words at random from a book you just finished and write a haiku--it doesn't have to have anything to do with the book). Today was my sixth haiku post for IG (PAPBwriter):

I'm also part of a panel discussion this weekend. The book festival is FREE, so register now:
Hopefully, I'll be back to the regular picture book review posts soon. Meanwhile, I wish everyone a belated Happy New Year.
