There's A Book

Littlebug was getting a little bit jealous that her big brother had his own interview feature and so we decided to create a feature just for her! Littlebug’s Boxed Bunch will highlight short lists of Littlebug’s favorite (or not-so favorite) books all packaged up with links ready for you to pick them up for yourself. The top five will also include a short summary of Littlebug’s thoughts on each book. We’re hoping to cover a variety of topics from seasons and holidays to things like trucks, friends, dinosaurs and more, but if you have one you’d like to request please let us know in the comments!

    ooo great feature — and I love how you did all ages, bravo! I think it would be fun to do a “just for fun”, but that’s just because I need something LIGHT to read. Like, a dash of romance, no-brainer fun.
