I love it when I get to feature kid-lit friends I’ve met in person. Last November, I had lunch with Laura Gehl at the NCTE – we had a ball chatting. And so, when I heard that she just launched a book that is perfect for the upcoming holiday season, I asked her if she’d like to Write for Cookies…and lucky for us, she said YES!
Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, dear friends. It’s been a busy week – lots of Zoom meetings with some of my #PBChat Mentees and Runner-ups. And then on Wednesday, I joined ‘You’ve Got Mel’ for a podcast chat with the amazing Mel Rosenberg who is a university professor in Tel Aviv, a micro biologist, an inventor…and someone who writes picture book stories – what an incredible combination, right? At the end of this post I’ll include a link to the interview in case you are interested in finding out even more about me than you already know. I talk about Trick or Treating when I was 5-years-old – our apartment house had 104 families – our candy bags were definitely full…about how various mentors helped guide my writing path…and so much more!
But right now, I’m sure you are tired of waiting…even if we are all waiting together…for today’s Perfect Picture Book!
Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, dear friends. Today’s selection is a definite SLAM-DUNK! As someone who was born and raised in New York City, I’ve been a fan of the Harlem Globetrotters for decades. I’m also a huge fan of Suzanne Slade and Don Tate. So, when I heard about their new book which launches next week, I knew I had to share it with you.
