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
