November is "Picture Book Month" as we are told on the site, Picture Book Month: A Celebration! Five children's writers and illustrators have begun the celebration, and what a party it is, and continues to be for two more weeks!
Please take the time to read some of the posts--you'll be surprised at how valuable picture books still are in these days of interactive media and ereaders. There's nothing like snuggling up with a child on your lap, poring over illustrations, and sharing a great story!
Speaking of picture books, we just received part of the 2011 crop of holiday picture books including Little Bunny and the Magic Christmas Tree by David Martin [JP MAR], A Christmas Tree for Pyn by Olivier Dunrea [JP DUN], and Elmer's Christmas by David McKee [JP MCK].
