Happy Book Birthday Times Two: I CAN CODE Series Plus Giveaway

Woot! Woot! It’s Happy Book Birthday time again…and boy, do I love celebrating when a friend’s book launches! I met this amazing author/illustrator during my first #50PreciousWords contest…she reached out and asked if I’d like a logo for it. A logo? You betcha! The talented Vicky Fang created the awesome logo for that…and also for #50PreciousWordsforKids. I’ll be forever grateful to her! And so, when I found out that she had a series of board books coming out to introduce coding to the very young, I knew I would want to tell the world about it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO I CAN CODE

Perfect Picture Book Friday: MARIE CURIE and the Power of Persistence PLUS Giveaway

Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, my friends.

I love when new books come out and I know the author and/or illustrator. And it’s especially cool when I’ve actually met them…in person! These days, with social distancing, that isn’t happening very often. But luckily, a few months ago, I happened to be in the Chicago area and was able to have lunch with the wonderful author of today’s featured book. We even spent a few minutes at one of the local bookstores in Evanston, Bookends and Beginnings. And because Karla is such a sweetheart, she is offering a copy of this brand-new only-out-in-the-world-for-a-week book as a giveaway!
