I'm all for fairer Fair Use but what I'm really wondering is how many Seuss books have been published posthumously? Maybe his estate has a space-themed one in the wings. Wasn't going to write any #TrumpBookReports until I read the Purple Crayon one by @philnel, then I got kind of carried away. Those tweets and some other #kidlit-themed favorites from last night. Forget being too terrifying for children, this book is too much for me. I wanted to know how many books we're talking about when we say #WeNeedDiverseBooks in actual numbers. What do you think of these numbers? Here's the history of the Cooperative Children's Book Council's reporting and the numbers for diversity in #kidlit from 2002-2015. Here's the newly released diversity in children's book publishing infographic by illustrator David Huyck. Let's get more diverse books, it's really not that hard. Anyone else going to this event? It's not until April 2017 but I just found out I get to present so I will be attending. I am most excited about Greg Pizzoli because I love 'The Watermelon Seed'. Has anyone been to any other book festivals for children'... I just read Doll Bones to my 10 year old and we both really enjoyed it. Any other award winning books you've enjoyed for that age range?
