Great Children's Reads






One of my favorite places in world is our local library. I still remember when I was six-years-old, the summer after first grade, my mom and I walking to the library for my first library card. 

Ironically, now when I'm at the library, it's not for a book. I borrow their DVDs and use their copier and printer. I usually venture over early on a Saturday morning and run into Children's Storytime. Although I don't write for children, I've always been interested in Children's Literature and it's capacity to intrigue, motivate, and teach. I'm thrilled by how enthused, excited, and engaged the little ones are with something as simple as a book.

For writers, parents, grandparents, teachers who are interested in Children's Literature, here are several releases you -- and your little ones -- may enjoy.

Side by Side 


Follow one little mouseling and her search for a best friend to stay by her side in this joyful read-aloud bedtime book -- the perfect celebration of friendship.

From brave and bold to creative and clever, the rhythmic rhyme expresses all the loving things that parents think of when they look at their children.

Of course, with March 2nd being Dr. Seuss's birthday, I couldn't talk about a Children's book without mentioning an "oldie but goodie," my favorite Dr. Seuss book...



Horton Hears A Who!



Horton the Elephant represents kindness and goodness and from this story comes one of Dr. Seuss's most inspirational quotes, "A person's a person, no matter how small."

    1. When I was at the library last week, there was a huge invitation as you entered. The invitation invited all to a birthday party on Wednesday, March 2nd, for Dr. Seuss!
