What's New?

July 14, 2019

Nine Months: Before a Baby Is Born, by Miranda Paul, illustrated by Jason Chin, is a stunningly beautiful picture book that shows a soon-to-be big sibling what is going on with their new sibling in the months before birth.

Meanwhile, you can hear about my experiences this year at ALA Annual Conference, the culmination of my time on the Newbery committee in the Conference Corner posts on my blog.

Happy Reading!
