Mommy says yes to books

Turning the pages on books

When we moved into our new home, I swapped all the shelves in the house around, giving my son a few extra sets. The result is that he has a full wall of books. Sometimes I hang out in the doorway of his room without him noticing me, and I watch him select a book from one of his shelves and snuggle up with it. (That's not weird, right?)…

3 Facts About Writing Picture Books

Years ago, before I wrote my first picture book, I thought that picture books were really easy to write.  I figured, well, they are short and how hard can it be to write a short book?

How wrong I was.

First of all, when you are writing a picture book usually you are writing for a younger audience. So you have to use short sentences and simple words.

Secondly, you have to make it interesting. Most picture books are short, so you have to grab their attention and keep it.…

My son and I are at the bookstore. He is super excited. He has been dragged around on chores with me all day: Car wash, food shopping, photo pickup, department stores and several other places.

VIDEO: Best Books for Babies and Toddlers

Dear Diary,

As a child, you couldn't catch me without a book in my hand. My idea of fun was spending a Saturday at the library, checking out every hardcover I could carry. I would read to anyone who would listen, including my Cabbage Patch Kids lined up on my bed. I knew the mailman by name. I sat by the door waiting for him to deliver my monthly subscription of Highlights magazine. After I finished a chapter, I would write my own stories in a notebook. But as time passed and as I…
