There's A Book

Last year one of my most viewed posts was a discussion about if you’re ever too old to read picture books. Included in the discussion was a survey and overwhelmingly the response was “Nope! You’re never too old!”. I’d have to say that I agree one hundred percent!

One of the greatest joys I’ve rediscovered since the birth of my two children has been the love of reading picture books. As a child I loved books, but for obvious reasons I slowly moved on and matured into full length novels. What’s now clear to me is that picture books should be a part of daily reading just as much as a full length novel. Size doesn’t matter! Fortunately there are teachers, librarians, publishers and others whom I interact with daily who feel exactly the way I do and are giving tweens, teens and adults the opportunity to rediscover these hidden treasures. From their inspiration I’ve decided to do what I can and spend the entire 2012 year celebrating picture books!

Yes, for the entire year I’ll be sharing a different picture book each day!

Each day I’ll share a cover image, synopsis, publication date info and possibly a little info about the author. These won’t be reviews, though I’ll still be doing those as well. No rhyme or reason to the order and readers can even recommend their favorites to be featured! I’m simply wanting to bring attention to some fantastic books that bring joy and meaning to the lives of those who read them. I hope everyone enjoys! Bring on the recommendations!
