Another busy week has just wrapped up here at JIAB headquarters. It was a bittersweet week of highs and lows as well. I was so sad to hear of Vera B Williams death. She contributed greatly to so many in the wonderful literature she wrote . You will be greatly missed Vera.

Then there were light-hearted milestones like the fact that one of my favorite books, Caps for Sale, turned 75.

  1. A Chair for My mother is an award winning classic novel written in the 80’s. The book is still used today in elementary classrooms. What a tribute to the author. great
    Your book lists for boys, girls and artists are outstanding in this post. The amount of research involved to compile and whittle down to a manageable number to share takes a lot of research and decision making.
