25 Days – Book 15: Miracle on 133rd Street


Ten days until Christmas! As we truck on in our picture book countdown, I am delighted to bring yet another new book this year. I am beginning to realize I have a small obsession with this illustrator. It comes as a complete surprise to me as I don’t actively seek out her books; but every time I come across one, I fall madly in love. But it isn’t just the images here; this story is beautiful, heartwarming, familial, and a little tear-jerking. Come delight in another Christmas miracle that changes an apartment building and a whole community, all thanks to a special Puerto Rican Christmas roast. Here is Miracle on 133rd Street by Sonia Manzano, illustrated by Marjorie Priceman, 2015.

Children’s Picture Books For Fall, 2013


Happy fall everyone! This is my absolute favorite time of year and calls for a celebration. You know my version of a good time always involves picture books so I’ve rounded up some fall-themed books to welcome the special season. Most are old and one is brand new so hopefully you’ll find some new favorites. There are a couple other new books that I haven’t gotten my hands on yet, so they’ll be getting some love in their own posts hopefully very soon. Come along and bask in the glories of autumn with ten children’s picture books for fall. Read the full post…

Book Review: Cold Snap By Eileen Spinelli & Marjorie Priceman

Priceman 1

Last week I was feeling the spring fever and starting to believe that Punxsutawney Phil just might have been right about an early spring this year. And then this morning we awoke to several inches of snow and it is still falling. A bit of a surprise for early March in the South. I will not complain however, but instead will curl up with some hot cocoa and a few good snowy books. This one made it to the top of the pile this morning and seems incredibly appropriate. Here is Cold Snap by Eileen Spinelli, illustrated by Marjorie Priceman, 2012. Read the full post…
