Story time is the best time of the day. Whether we're snuggled up on the couch or cozy in our pjs before bed, reading stories with my little ones is one of my favorite things to do. Everyone has a favorite book they remember from their childhood, and every day, parents and kids are discovering new classics of their own. There are many fabulous children's books out there, some of which everyone knows about and others we would have never discovered had my son not simply pulled a random book off a library shelf. I created this blog to share some of these wonderful stories with you. Think of it as a year's worth of the best children's books around, since no day should be without a great story. In the end, I hope we'll all have discovered at least a few new titles that will have made their way onto our list of family favorites. Enjoy!

November is Picture Book Month!

I was so excited to learn that November is Picture Book Month!  As explained on the website, PictureBookMonth.com "features essays from 'Picture Book Champions,' thought leaders in the children's literature community." A different author or illustrator will share an essay each day about their take on the wonderful world of picture books.  I can't wait to follow along and hear what they have to say about one of my favorite things!

To learn more about Picture Book Month and join in the celebration, please visit their website or find them on facebook at www.facebook.com/picturebookmonth.  You can also follow them on twitter @picturebookmonth or by using the hashtag #picturebookmonth.

Enjoy, and happy reading!!

“Picture books are the connective tissue between a parent and a child. …you stop everything, snuggle up on the couch or the floor and share a story.” 
– John Rocco, 2012 Caldecott Honor Winner, from his Picture Book Month Essay
