I am very proud of JIAB’s recent multicultural post.  Tenzin’s Deer is a touching tale, breathtaking illustrations & a lesson in compassion.

Do you read poetry with your kids? April is National Poetry Month so it’s the perfect time to get started. A JIBA favorite, Erica at What Do We Do All Day has this wonderful post.

  1. Valarie, you have such a nice selection of books listed here 🙂 A few years back, I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with E.B. Lewis, the illustratrator of THE OTHER SIDE (listed here) and many other beautiful books. I have this book and another by him and love them both!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Donna. You are SO lucky to have been able to meet E.B. Lewis. Jealous! 🙂

      1. Yes, Valarie, I definitely enjoy and appreciate when I get to meet the talented people I have, especially when I can actually get into good conversation instead of more of a “drive-by” encounter. He teaches watercolors, only he lives too far away for me to take advantage of that (he’s south Jersey, I’m north). I’m moving away from watercolors anyway 😉 The one person I met who I wish I’d been able to talk to more than I did (as would EVERYone else!) is Kate DiCamillo. So down-to-earth, and obviously—talented! 😀
