Let the Blogroll begin! 23 –> make that *32* Wonderful #kidlit Bloggers to follow in 2023!

January 31, 2023

Since we’re still buzzing from the ALA YMAs

and it’s almost February, let’s share some more love.

Today’s blog post is a shout out —

and a huge THANK YOU–to

#kidlit Book Bloggers:

The wonderful humans who WRITE & REVIEW & POST & help spread the word

about children’s books, authors & illustrators.

YOU are the reason people learned about our books during the Pandemic.

We authors and illustrators couldn’t do what we do without you.

Last month on Twitter I asked people to share links of their favorite book blogs, as well as their own.

NOTE: There are MANY others–and initially I imagined this post entitled

23 in 2023″ but hey–please check out our

32 in 2023

Kate Messner: https://katemessner.com/blog/ Many of us wouldn’t be meeting with students this week for WRAD if it weren’t for Kate’s incredible list of available authors & illustrators. Thank you!

Erin Dealey: https://erindealey.com/blog/ I’ve decided to add my blog as well. Current #kidlit releases, Book Birthdays, Classroom Blog Takeovers & more!

We hope you find this list helpful.

Authors –> Make your own blog tour.

Teachers, librarians –> A great way to build your stacks.

With the uncertainties of social media and Who’s-on-What? consider following these blog links directly.

Don’t see your favs? Add them in the comments.

I discovered some new #kidlit blogs as I put this list together, and of course I’m so thankful for the “usual suspects” as well.

#grateful for the #BookLove

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
