  • Illustrator Spotlight: Eduardo Paj

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  When it comes to children’s stories, illustrations work with the written plot to create an immersive world for young minds just beginning to explore the limits of their imagination through books.  Enter the artist, whose mission it is to bring the written word to life through pictures, engaging readers by jumpstarting the visual portion of the story within a child’s, or adult’s, mind.
  • These 7 Books Will Bestow the Luck of the Irish on their Readers

    Has there ever been a more misunderstood holiday than St. Patrick’s Day?  During our youngest years we’re taught to wear green and pinch, or at the very least give a solid teasing, to our classmates who have failed to comply with this unwritten rule.  As adults, more than a few poor decisions have been made over a pint, or two, of green colored beer.  And annually on March 17th you can count on anyone with even a hint of red hair, green eyes or a passable imitation brogue, to be sporting a “Kiss Me: I’m Irish” slogan somewhere on their person.

    While these modern pastimes make for good entertainment, they have little to do with the origins of the festive holiday.  This St. Patrick’s Day, why not start a fresh tradition with your children and explore a new culture with the historical roots of the holiday.  Looking for a place to start?  You’re in luck!  We’ve got 7 books that are sure to inform and entertain children of all ages with tales of Irish luck, mystical leprechauns and beautiful green isles.  So settle in, put down the beer goggles and get to reading one of these fabulous books about all things Irish.

  • Books for Children: A Modern (and Welcome) Invention

    There aren’t many of us in modern times that can’t look back with fond memories at their first children’s book.  Whether it was one of the Little Golden Book series with its distinctive gilt binding or something similar to the more modern Little Engine that Could standalone, that first childhood story has become a rite of passage and as common in households with young children as diapers, rattles or building blocks.  It seems foreign, then, to imagine that children’s books as we know them today are a modern invention and much different from those read a few hundred or even a mere 100 years ago.
