The weekly post where I recap some of the KidLit books I’ve been reading. Ocasionally, I’ll also talk about some adult fiction books as well.
I am so very excited for this one as it is my friend, Jason’s, debut picture book! It is a beautiful and heart warming story. Perfect for snuggling with your little one before bedtime. Chris Sheban’s illustrations are gorgeous and warm. I am giving away a signed copy. See the bottom of this post on how to enter.
Another friend, Moira’s, new informational nonfiction book just came out this past weekend as well! Moira’s nonfiction work is always so engaging. She and John Platt, who runs the nonprofit How to Draw a Lion, collaborated on this beautiful book. And it is extra special because all of the illustrations are done by children in John’s art class in Sub-Saharan Africa. Read more about their collaboration here.
This book is adorable! I loved their first book, THE HUG and this book is every bit as cute. And it is very timely. The illustrations are sweet and vibrant. This is a perfect book for those with little who are having a hard time not being about to hug their friends/extended family. It shows all the many ways we can show our love while still social distancing.
I was first drawn to this book because of the cover and title. And then the premise sealed the deal. A group of friends attend a zombie convention (think Comic Con except for the Walking Dead) when the actual zombie apocalypse breaks out. It was just the right mix of snarky humor, zombie suspense, and friend drama.
I am very excited to be giving away a autographed copy of Three Squeezes by Jason Pratt and Christ Sheban! I’ll announce a winner next Monday. If you’d like to enter, comment below.
