My first illustrated book has been published! I worked with author Gabrielle Grande to bring this true story to life. It is now available to purchase on amazon for kindle and will soon be available to purchase as a physical copy. 💖 #downsyndrome #childrensbook #childrensbooks #illustrator #illustration #kidlit #kids

For months, through the land of Ethonia down to the Nagoran Village, there had been gossip about Amoonda, a female warrior—the only female to ever be named a warrior for the courage she showed as she helped to forge the treaty of lands. - from Anyia, Dream of a Warrior

I was told its apart of life to work over 50 hrs a week for a job that kept a me away from my 2yr. That I was being dramatic about being sad about being away from her that I felt my child’s sadness missing her mommy. Then told it’s just separation anxiety 🤦🏾‍♀️ when something doesn’t feel right in your souls do whatever it takes to regain your peace and live a life worth living to YOU. Everyday I wake up I feel grateful for my blessings and confident about my choices. Thank you naysayers for the resistance I need to prove you wrong and do work with purpose that keep me home with my children. 🙏🏾💖 #trustyourself #findyourway to love happy.✌🏾#wellness #womensupportingwomen

Karena Ibunya memang seneng baca turun ke anaknya ya dr kecil udah dibeliin buku.
.
Try and error sampe menemukan simpulan kalau saya lbh seneng kasih buku lokal sama Freya. Selain support penulis lokal Freya lebih bisa nyambung sama hal hal dalam buku. Ini salah satu buku fav Freya dan mama.
.
Kaya bahasa komunikasi saat ini peer besarnya gimana anak saya bisa luwes ngomong basa sunda tanpa tercampur bahasa kasarnya dari lingkungan. Karena saya diam di lingkungan yang kental bahasa sundanya saat masuk sekolah kalau ga diajarin anak bisa roaming dan minder karena ga ngerti apa yang orang lain omongin.
.
Karena menurut saya identitas itu perlu. Selebihnya biarkan nanti anak nyaman sendiri mengeksplorasi dunia.

Part of a child’s development is learning how to question the unknown, so to harness this natural sense of curiosity, author Erica Fyvie in her new children’s book, Trash Revolution: Breaking the Waste Cycle (Kids Can Press), takes her readers on a journey of what happens to our “stuff.” Read our interview with Erica at the link in our bio! #kidlit #childrensbooks #environmentalart #reading

I made so many brilliant memories at Whitsunday Voices 2018. 📚 The kids were awesome, the authors were all hilarious and welcoming, and the team behind the festival treated us all like royalty. All very humbling in other words. 🙏🏻📚✍️
I’m currently preparing for creative writing talks at schools all over Sydney in August for Book Week. I’ll be at the Children’s Bookshop in Beecroft on August 11 for @loveyourbookshopday and my next festival appearance is at the @brisbane_writers_festival in September. 📚📚📚📚

Then there's times where the design just comes right out. I know I have an original sketch or two of Arnie somewhere, but it was just about the same as the final. No idea how that happens, but sometimes it does. His colors aren't final yet, but they are close!

Things I love about this story:
1. illustrations
2. humor
3. numbered lists
4. handwriting font
5. everything!
The worst thing about this family's new home is the walrus in the bathtub. Why? Because:
1. clam shells
2. screechy seagulls
3. bathtub tidal waves
4. pool parties
5. walrus songs
In fact, walrus songs are very, very loud. The family tries lots of clever things to get the walrus to leave the bathtub but no luck. So they decide they'd better move. Again... 🛀 Until the walrus shows them his list -- "How to Make Your New Family Feel Welcome" -- which, surprisingly, includes all the things that annoyed the family. It turns out that the walrus was just trying to be nice! So the family stays. With a few new rules. And a new perspective about all the good things that come with having a walrus in the bathtub. Absolutely charming! This will make you want your own walrus in a bathtub. 🛀
And kudos to @underwoodwriter who has been winning the picture book publishing industry!! 💕 So many incredible books!! 📚

Creating the simplest characters can be the hardest. Basic shapes and forms leave no room for error, it's too easily noticed. Ever try and draw Charlie Brown? He's incredibly difficult to look *just* right. It took me over two MONTHS to finally whittle Mel down to what I liked. And she's tricky to draw consistently. I'm having a model of her made just to help me out. .

From the moment I opened up this package from @peachtreepublishers I was memorized and in love with this beautiful story of parental love and home. The amazing charcoal drawings Jo Weaver created to tell this story of Gray Whale and her baby, Little Whale, long migration and journey to their family will capture the attention of your readers and be a favorite. Little Whale is released October 1. You can read more on my blog at thelibraryvoice.com #librariesofinstagram #kidlit #futurereadylibs #tlchat #whales #science #littlewhale #peachtreepublishers

I ADORE this book/message! “Pass It On” by Sophy Henn is about sharing your joy and happiness with others. When you see something wonderful or funny, enjoy it and then pass it on to friends and family. After all, when you spread happiness it always comes back to you. In the same way when I see a beautiful sunset I scream at my husband to look at it (and to all those lucky people who have ever travelled with me and know my NEED to catch the sunset) or when I see a fire engine and shout at the kids to look out the window - I need to pass my happiness on! Fantastic book to live on your shelf permanently! #storytimeatthelawhouse #storytime #childrensbooks #bookmom #bookish #kidslit #kidlit #kidsbooks #kidsbooks #kidsbookstagram #kidsliterature #childrensbooks #picturebooks #raiseareader #raisingareader #passiton #sophyhenn

"In my house are all these parts;

Rules of the Ruff by Heidi Lang was sweet and funny, but also so much more, as we get a glimpse of the world through 12 year old Jessie’s eyes. Feeling pretty alone in her cousin's home for the summer , Jessie pesters a reclusive neighbor into letting her tag along on his dog walking job. She learns lessons about judging others, the complicated human nature, consequences of actions, how to stand up for yourself and still get along with others, and the fluidity of relationships. The ending was just beautiful and summed up all that Jessie learned about compassion. I think most kids (and adults) can relate to Jessie's experiences. I empathized with her, while still cringing at some of her actions. I liked the realistic portrayal of all the characters, and how Jessie learns that everything isn’t always black and white. People aren’t usually all good or all bad. We make good choices, and sometimes bad ones, and we keep trying. And we keep forgiving, because we don’t always know someone else's story. #RulesOfTheRuff #HeidiLang #NetGalley #mglit #kidlit #middlegrade #middlegradebooks #iteachthird #iteachreading #30booksummer (book38)

I’m always busy sharing my own #bookstacks, so for once I thought it would be fun to share a stack of my toddler’s current favorite reads! 🙌🏻 Though I’m sure by next week (or even tomorrow) this whole stack will be forgotten and replaced by new favorites. 😉

I hope your weekend has been off to a lovely start, friends! 💕

👟Sneakers, kicks, tennis-shoes, gym-shoes, trainers, whatever you call them, we have all had our favorite pair! And parting with them can be...oh sweet sorrow!!!😔
👟
"...there's NOTHING like an OLD pair of kicks!" You reminisce about all the good times you had, the messes you got into together and the cool tricks you were able to do on your skateboard with them! You know that no other sneakers in the world can ever live up to your old pair! Who cares if they are worn torn, sticky, stinky and funky...Mom, that's who!!!😅
👟
And since Moms are ALWAYS right, you succumb and give the new sneakers a try, and you find out that, they are not so bad after all! And at the end of the day you see that, "There's NOTHING like a NEW pair of kicks!" 👟

Anticipate 👉👉👉@kesanduandtari - Author of #KesanduAndTariandtheCandyflossCloud @Jacquiiman : "Finding the right Illustrator can be tedious, overwhelming and extremely difficult, but once you find the right Artist whose style matches yours and vivaciously brings your text to life, it definitely makes it worthwhile. A lot of times I would change some details in the text in light of @AkpanGodwin 's illustrations, simply because it worked better visually."

As we all know, preschoolers ask a LOT of questions. This book does such a great job of addressing questions this age group might have about the rain and how animals react to rain. Each page gives just the right amount of facts in language that is accessible for young children. The illustrations are adorable and eye catching. It is a perfect blend of fact and story for this age group. Little bookworm really enjoyed it and I even learned a thing or two! • Where Does Kitty Go In the Rain?

Coconut Mon by Linda Milstein cracks Elle up because she tries her hardest to speak Patois or some made up island accent and she…hilariously struggles. This has been a favorite book for years and was very instrumental in helping Elle count. The pictures are captivating and tell a story themselves all while counting down to just oooooooone coconut. Excuse us while we dream of Negril, Jamaica.

I fell a few days behind with #PictureBookPicnic. For day 19, rhyme, I chose CHICKEN SOUP WITH RICE by Maurice Sendak. My pick for Day 20, trees, was A TREEFUL OF PIGS by Arnold Lobel, illustrated by Anita Lobel. And for today's theme of birds I chose an image from MAMA, LOOK! by Patricia Murphy and David Diaz.

Terminou o primeiro módulo do @gritodolivro e todo mundo saiu super animado e a fim de mudar, ainda mais, o mundo com livros!
Hoje teve uma aula sobre elaboração de projetos de pontos de leituras.

E ainda ganhei de presente um livro da Maria José, da mala do livro, do (@coletivotransverso) Coletivo TRANSVERSO que espalha poesias e questionamentos pela cidade de Brasília e entorno. Um dos meus favoritos fica num viaduto perto da rodoviária, que está na capa do livro e pra minha surpresa, dentro dele vem o stencil pra multiplicá-lo.
O movimento cultural e social Grito do Livro: Leia Mais! formará 35 agentes de leitura de bibliotecas e pontos de leitura do DF como mediadores de leitura e da memória literária, com apoio do Fundo de Apoio à Cultura do Distrito Federal – FAC.

O projeto tem a coordenação de Cleide Soares e mobilizará agentes de leitura que atuam em comunidades urbanas e rurais e novos interessados em promover ações de incentivo à leitura.

Vamos transformar o mundo com poemas e livros!

Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall really got us imagining what life was like for lighthouse keepers before they were replaced by automated machines. It depicts the life of a lighthouse keeper who lives in a lighthouse with his wife on a tiny island in the middle of the sea. The keeper’s duties included polishing the lens, waking up throughout the night to wind the clockwork that turned the lens, refilling the lamp with oil that had to be carried up the spiral staircase, recording everything meticulously in a logbook, and even rescuing shipwreck survivors. According to the author’s note, sometimes a keeper had an assistant, and “one keeper and his assistant annoyed each other so much that they went a year without speaking and ate all their meals facing in opposite directions”! Did you know that some families had as many as eleven children in a lighthouse? Can you imagine that? Or having everything you need (e.g., food, books, clothing, letters) brought to you by a supply ship that came only once every few months, and this was your sole contact with the rest of the world? Definitely one of the most fascinating picture books we’ve read, and it prompted a trip to a decommissioned lighthouse built in the 1800s #kidlit #buildyourlibrarycurriculum #picturebooks #readaloud

One of our current chapter book read-alouds that we are really loving. “At Oddfellow’s Orphanage, nothing was ordinary—for better or worse. . . . At other schools, students usually study things like math, reading, and science, but Oddfellow Bluebeard has different ideas about what subjects the children should learn . . . . The first class was F.T. Studies, which was all about fairy tales and folktales. . . . Next there was a class in cryptozoology, which is the study of mysterious and possibly imaginary animals.” Sounds like a normal day around here #unschooling #kidlit #readaloud

Favorite June reads for the 6yo and the 2yo:
“After the war ended, Audrey and her mother moved to London. They had very little money. In fact, Audrey had only a few blouses and skirts and one colorful scarf. But she could tie the scarf twenty different ways to make a new outfit every day. . . . Audrey often played characters who went through some kind of transformation, both inside and out. But in real life, Audrey always knew just who she was, and just where she had come from.”—Just Being Audrey by Margaret Cardillo “When she was older, Mary went to art school. She met Lee. He showed her rosy pink and blushing red. She kept those colors in her heart.”—Pocket Full of Colors: The Magical World of Mary Blair, Disney Artist Extraordinaire by Amy Guglielmo and Jacqueline Tourville. #buildyourlibrarycurriculum #kidlit #picturebooks #homeschooling #readaloud
