I have been on a roll, reading ARCs and Galleys (I’m not sure why there are 2 names for the same thing) and there are some very cute books coming out. Thank you to Edelweiss and the publishers for access to these great titles!
Before I talk about the picture books I read, I just have to say how excited I am to be reading Dragonwatch by Brandon Mull. This is being described as a sequel series to Fablehaven, my 2nd favorite series of all time. Same characters, new adventure!!
What a great story. A tale about “littles” and how they grow. This book showed diversity in the families and love on every page. I can’t wait to see this as an actual book.

Next up: Freckleface Strawberry: Monster Time! written by Julianne Moore and illustrated by LeUyen (pronounced Le Win) Pham. Freckleface Strawberry books are very fun and sweet. I am not sure if this is the first beginning reader for Moore but she does a great job, tackling a friendship situation with text that kids can understand. Great illustrations.

Next: Naptastrophe written and illustrated by Jarrett Krosoczka. If you are a parent of anyone over the age of 2, you can relate to this book. It is a tale of our little Lucy, who isn’t tired. She isn’t tired when she is put down for a nap, she isn’t tired when she goes shopping with her dad, she isn’t tired at dinner and she is not tired when she falls face first into her food. Fun illustrations and text.
