Top 5 Author / Illustrator Posts of 2016

#5 Featured Illustrator: Melissa Sweet

#4 Featured Illustrator: Demi (part 1: biographies and part 2: traditional tales)

#3 Featured Illustrator: Duncan Tonatiuh (part 1 and part 2)

I still need to write up all the details about our incredible school visit with Duncan earlier this month! (I highly recommend him for an author visit. He was awesome with our 2nd through 7th graders in both small and large group settings.) My first post about his books introduces his fictional stories, and the second post covers his biographies. [Spoiler: his newest book coming out next year is a dance-based biography ... ! The artwork is stunning. Just incredible.]

#2 Interview and the Books of René Colato Laínez

I was delighted when Lee & Low contacted me about an opportunity to interview René Colato Laínez. I wrote an initial post with a review of his current picture books, as well as the interview post that also includes my review of his newest book, Mamá the Alien / Mamá la Extraterrestre. Another great author to get to know!

#1 Interview with Shoumi Sen

Our top author / illustrator post was my interview with author Shoumi Sen about her From the Toddler Diaries series. These are great books to introduce youngsters to different popular Indian holidays. Read on as Shoumi talks about her inspiration for the series.

Plus ... big news from Shoumi this week. A second book in the series, Celebrate Holi With Me, just arrived in January 2017!
