WHO? THE KIRKUS BOARD BOOK REVIEW IS IN!

A wonderful review of WHO? A CELEBRATION OF BABIES from Kirkus states that “This babycentric board book features a diverse cast of characters. Harris is best known for her matter-of-fact and accurate nonfiction…Her first board book is equally positive, direct, and charming… The message that they are “SWEET BABIES! NICE BABIES!” is one that many babies will want to hear again and again.” (Board book. 6 mos.-3)

BOOM! THE BOOKLIST REVIEW IS IN!

A wonderful review of CRASH! BOOM! from Booklist states that “Attention, aspiring architects and engineers: a first builder’s blueprint for constructing really, really tall buildings has arrived! A rosy-cheeked, sky-blue elephant digs into his plastic orange blocks container and stacks one, two more, and four blocks to build a tower as tall as he is. But due to a wiggly, wobbly base, it ascends precariously, only to topple over in a dramatic ‘CRASH! BOOM!’ catastrophe.”

Whenever I find out a book of mine is
in the media, my first response is “Me? Really?”
Then when I realize that something I wrote
is being talked or written about, most always,
I feel proud and thrilled!
