📚Our Author of the Day (or Night😄) is...Crystal Swain-Bates!!!
📖
"Big Hair, Don't Care", is one of our mantras!!! It is books such as these that encourage little brown and black girls and boys to see the beauty that they possess in a world that often sends very different message. Swain-Bates' stories promote confidence and pride with books like, Big Hair, Don't Care (2013), I'm A Pretty Princess (2016), and Naturally Me! (2014) 📖
Through her self-publishing company Swain-Bates puts stories into the hands of children in which they can see themselves! This was so important to her that she left her position at the CIA to make it happen!!!Now that is impressive!!!🤗Thank You!!!
📖
In addition to picture books Swain-Bates also has coloring and activity books and an online store at www.browngirlsclub.com 📖

Moose is in the Christmas spirit tackling everything on his to do list (sound familiar this time of year?) and thinks he is just about done, until his family realizes something. He FORGOT the tree! 🎄🎄🎄🎄 Moose saves the day with his crazy idea.⁣

{A Silly Snowy Day by Michael Coleman & Gwyneth Williamson} A fun, repetitive story about a tortoise named Shelley (great name) who defies her parents and goes out in winter. She meets lots of animals who incredulously explain why she shouldn't be out in winter like them. I like that it secretly hints at animal adaptations to survive winter, i.e. the duck has a beak that can break ice. Eventually Shelley's shell helps her slide on home and hybernate like she's supposed to. Vocab words were *trudge* and *lumber.*

This is what I do when I'm not with all of you healthy freaks 😀... This year was a hard year dealing with my skin problems, this was even a tuff video to make. There were many speaking engagements that I didn't take because of it...

Kuma por Olga Santillán es un cuento narrado por el protagonista, un perrito. Nos contará sus aventuras, su tristeza y su alegría al pertenecer a una familia que de verdad lo quiere.
El tema principal es hacernos concientes del cuidado de los animales, sobre todo los perros y gatos.

A todos los amantes de los cachorros, les va a gustar. 📚 8, 9 en adelante

Unicorn! I love a few random pictures in a book.  That's partly why I had to get the Stalking Jack the Ripper series in hardcover. Those random medical photos had me at first 🗡 (just pretend that's a scalpel). #unicorn #bookstagram #bibliophile #middlegradebooks #kidslit #kidsbook
Our @scholasticinc book order came in today! Someone is a big fan of #DavidShannon 📚books. He requested more David books, so of course we had to 😃

A fun and silly #bookfacefriday This is harder than it looks people. Give me a 20 person bridal party, no problem - but trying to make a book really look like someone's head - I am a little bit challenged. Maybe I am just trying too hard. ⠀
⠀
The Way I Feel, by Janan Cain, is a wonderful book that touches on all the different emotions that little ones feel. It helps spark discussions about why we feel the way we do, how we can manage our feelings and ultimately how we can change our feelings if they are unfavorable. ⠀

A simple and powerful book. There are some fantastic examples of age appropriate conversations about consent. I appreciate how Finn’s parents support him in navigating these conversations and open up avenues for him to make his own choices. I also love the discussion questions at the end, there are questions for older kids and questions for parents, family, and caretakers. A very valuable introduction or refresher on the values of expressing boundaries and being respectful of others’ boundaries. #cisforconsent #eleanormorrison #fayeorlove

Saturday morning, ten days away from Christmas. Children linger in bed as the long holidays stretch out before us, filled with the promises of days spent in pyjamas, museum trips, movies, boardgames and living by the sea, salty hair and sun kissed skin, tiny crabs nibbling our toes, sounds of the magpies calling us. Christmas foods begin to fill the cupboards. Baking begins. The smallest child, teetering on the edge of believing, still awaits a mythical arrival on Christmas morning. And the love between us all fills every corner of the house 💖⭐💖 #helenedwardswrites #agentlelife #christmas2018

The Review! Slightly late but worth the wait. So on our first reading on Wednesday night Richie enjoyed this book SO MUCH he asked me to read it again. Not that unusual but after the second reading he asked for me to read it again. Never has he asked me to read a book for the third time in a row at bedtime. To fully give my ultimate seal of approval I took this wonderfully wacky wee book to nursery. I got another member of staff to read it & when I approached the children at the end of the story they couldn't wait to tell me what the old lady had swallowed. But to be fair it is pretty outrageous! She swallows Santa & his Reindeer & fairy lights let alone the star! A fantastically funny, you could say brilliantly bizarre Christmas read! Not sure if you can buy it in the UK as it was sent from NZ & an Aussie publication but it is a belter & if you get the chance, grab it with both hands! #therewasanoldladywhoswallowedastar #nowthatsbizarre #scholasticau #hilarious #hattrick #kidslovedit #raisingreaders #raisingboys #bedtimereadsforweeones_ #kidslit #picturebook #kidsbooksofinsta #readallaboutit #winner #ownit #grabit

Amazing to see the first Sweetbriars book, my first book ☺️, reach 50 Goodreads reviews today and maintain a good star rating 🙏🏻🙌🥂Even better is to read reviews from young readers, like Caitlyn's: "I really enjoyed reading this book. My favourite character is Cate because we have a pony and a horse at my house and I really like her personality. I also liked this book because there is a glossary at the back of the book. I think that is a great idea for a horse book, because some words were unfamiliar to me. I love the cover of the book as well. I really hope there will be a second book in this series because I loved the first one."

""Ω τι φωτεινή νύχτα, τι ήσυχα που είναι απόψε! Νύχτα για αλεπούδες και για νάνους. Οι άνθρωποι κοιμούνται στα σπίτια τους. Στην άκρη του δάσους λάμπει κιόλας ο Αυγερινός..." Το διαβάζεις και το ξαναδιαβάζεις και μετά κι άλλη μια... Βασισμένο σε ποίημα του Karl-Erik Forsslund, που διασκεύασε η σπουδαία Σουηδέζα λογοτέχνιδα Astrid Lindgren το 1965 και εικονογράφησε η Eva Eriksson μόλις το 2017, το παραμύθι «Ο Νάνος και η αλεπού» (εκδόσεις Μάρτης) είναι μια μαγική χριστουγεννιάτικη ιστορία για όλες τις ηλικίες, που θα μας γεμίσει με γαλήνη και ζεστασιά.

On December 24, 1914, on the Western Front of World War I, the faint sound of “Stille Nacht” rose from the German trenches. When the German soldiers finished singing, their foes broke out in cheers and replied with an English carol. When dawn broke on Christmas morning, men from both sides laid down their weapons and emerged from the trenches to share food, carols, and games. In a world that is so divisive, my prayer this Christmas season is that we too can set aside our differences to come together in the spirit of love and friendship.

🎄Part 2 is now available!🎄Link in the bio. "Ornament Enlightenment" is a children's story about a boy who learns the true meaning of Christmas from a pretty unexpected source: the ornaments on his Christmas tree. They have a lot to teach him and he has a lot to learn. 🎄. I'm SO HAPPY with the feedback on this story so far. I received emails this week saying: 👍"Brilliant!" 👍"Beautiful story." 👍"Awesome!" 👍"I can't wait to read the rest." 🎄 
But I have admit, listening to my own daughters respond was the best. They loved it. One of them REALLY like the part when the dad yells at his son. I'm not sure what that says about me as HER dad, but I'm glad she laughed. Seriously, though, they have had amazing ideas for lessons from ornaments. I hope parents and teachers using this story will have that conversation with their kids: 
What do the ornaments on your Christmas tree have to teach us about Christmas? 🎄 
The story (book?) is finished and Part 3 will be published next Friday! 🎄
Happy Advent! 🎄

I’m not quite sure where we went right, but her mad obsession with books has me FEELING ALL THE FEELS. The way she waddles up to me with her favourite books (choosing them well over any toy in the house) and climbs on to my lap for me to read them to her (sometimes 50+ times a day) makes me happier than I thought was humanly possible. We have a #littleladylibrary in the making... ohhh new account idea?! Would you be interested in that? Maybe a Friday feature on this account? Comment below!

Anyone else love @marlafrazee's illustrations? We have a whole bunch of books written/illustrated by her, and this book has been making an appearance every single day since I took it out. Ever wonder how Santa manages to get the right toys to the right kids? It's hard work! If you're interested in finding out, and enjoying some amazingly detailed illustrations, pick this one up from your local bookstore or library now! There's still time!

We were very lucky to have a visit from @heffers_cambridge the other day and I just couldn’t resist this beautiful Christmas book. I’d come across many of the other Katie books, but not this festive story.
.
After hearing the first “Atchoo”, the Little Bookworms were entranced. They guessed that it could be Father Christmas straight away, yet they had no idea about Katie and Jack’s exciting journey that would follow.
.
The Little Bookworms loved spotting the landmarks of London and many of them said that they’d do anything to be one of Father Christmas’ helpers. One of the Little Bookworms wasn’t pleased about working through the night though as it might make her “cranky” on Christmas Day!
.
After working through the night, Buckingham Palace is the last stop and perhaps the most dangerous when Father Christmas is full of cold. The Little Bookworms held their breath when they saw the corgis sleeping peacefully by the Christmas tree and Father Christmas’ nose began to twitch. Will they be discovered by the royal family?

Appreciation is something that’s so easy to practice, and yet so easy to overlook.
.
When we are focussed on achieving the next thing in life, it can be easy to forget all the good we already have.
.
The good things in life can become “normal”, taken for granted, under-appreciated.
.
While we reach for the next thing, we  are hugely empowered by appreciating all the goodness that already surrounds us.
.
It can be the simple things like food, water, family, housing that when appreciated, can completely elevate our mindset and energy levels.
.
In Book 1, Myasako and Martin begin by under-appreciating the lives they already have. Swapping lives exposes them to all the things they can be grateful for back home...
.
And so let this holiday season be a time for #appreciation, and watch the goodness grow...and appreciate.

Thank You @sesamestreet for addressing the issues that many children face and/or witness everyday!!! Issues that can be hard and even uncomfortable for parents, caregivers, and educators to discuss with young children.

The other night walking downtown we passed by people sitting and sleeping on the sidewalks with blankets and their belongings. Lulu asked me why they were there and I reminded her that some people do not have homes to go to every night. After pondering this she asked me if I thought they were sad, (Yes...Some of them may be), if they were cold, (Yes...It does get cold at night) and why couldn't people just help them by opening up their doors and letting them into their homes. (Some people do, but if only it was this simple Lulu!)😔
🌍
We will continue our discussion on homelessness through children's literature and great shows such as Sesame Street!

Lily, a fuchsia #Muppet with a mop of hair, green eyelids and a lavender nose, debuted on @sesamestreet 7 years ago. Shy and soft-spoken, she explained to #Elmo that her family did not have enough to eat. Now, Lily will reappear for the first time, as someone who is homeless. Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit that produces #SesameStreet, realized that the issue — 2.5 million children nationally are homeless — needed attention, said Jeanette Betancourt, senior vice president for U.S. Social Impact at Sesame Workshop. In New York City, where Sesame Street is set, one out of every 10 students was homeless during the past school year. On Sesame Street, “homeless” is never uttered because of the stigma surrounding the word; on the show, “H” stands for hope, help, healing and home. @jonahmarkowitz took this photo of Lily and the puppeteer Leslie Carrara-Ruolph on set in Queens, New York.

#newportfolio Re-doing some past drawings in traditional/non-digital materials. Spoiler: the boy is a ghost! 😀👻 My version of a scene from "The Night It Rained," from In a Dark, Dark Room, retold by Alvin Schwartz.

Whether you’re welcoming a new pet - or even a new sibling - to the family this holiday season, my book Purrsnikitty is a great holiday gift to give to children preparing for a big change.⠀
_⠀
Pursnikitty is a fun story from the moment the cat is chosen from the shelter to the end of the book. Along the way, a new pet enters the family, which means joys and challenges for our star -who was modeled after a real cat chosen from many contest entrants.⠀
_⠀
This book is an excellent resource for teachers, library ‘story hours,’ and parents, with discussion questions to further the reading and learning experience. Themes in Purrsnikitty include: sibling rivalry, responsible pet ownership, accepting change. Click the link in my profile to shop now!⠀

#NidoRecomienda - Book Pick 13 - sólo faltan once recomedados de nuestra lista de 24 libros hasta Nochebuena!
.
El Expreso Polar de Chris Van Allsburg. Publicada por primera vez hace 33 años, esta historia simboliza el poder de creer en la magia, en las tradiciones de Navidad. Pero sobretodo es una invitación a no olvidar al niño que alguna vez fuimos, y que siempre debe vivir dentro de nosotros, para que esa virtud de apreciar la “magia”, la esencia de las cosas, nunca se disipe. Un llamado a no perder nuestra capacidad de asombro...
.

Llevada al cine en el 2004, se ha convertido en un clásico navideño. Pero el libro, con el estilo que caracteriza a Van Allsburg (también creador de Jumanji y Zathura entre otros), es menos explícito, por tanto más amplio para que nosotros construyamos el resto. La frase final apela a nosotros los lectores y debo decir que siempre siento mi garganta anudarse mientras leo que los otros chicos han perdido ya su inocencia y descreen de la magia, simbolizada en un cascabel del trineo de Santa Claus cuyo tintinear ya no es audible para ellos. “Aunque ya soy viejo, el cascabel aun suena para mi, como suena para todos aquellos que verdaderamente creen”. En esta Navidad nuestros deseos es que todos sigamos escuchando el cascabel, sigamos creyendo en la bondad del mundo, en el calor humano y en la capacidad incalculable que como especie tenemos para hacer el bien si nos lo proponemos. Nuestra tarjeta de Navidad aquí para todos ustedes! .

De venta en la libreria y en nuestra tienda virtual.
