I can’t get enough of picture books and have set myself the unruly task of reviewing one a day on this blog for a year. Editing a monthly picture book newsletter for Auckland Libraries inspired me to get sharing, but I realised I didn’t have enough space there to say what I really thought. In this blog I will be able to effuse more extensively.
After working as a Children’s Librarian for many years, I now have the pleasure of selecting children’s and teen books as well as graphic novels for Auckland Libraries. This basically means my job is to keep up with what’s happening in the book world (even though you are now jealous of me, it’s okay, we’re still friends).
This blog will hopefully be a great place for children’s librarians, teachers and parents to visit for inspiration. With a mixture of old and new, there will be something for everyone. I have linked each title through to my local library catalogue. For any non-Aucklanders, all the books reviewed will still be in print, so can be bought or suggested to your local library.
