Every time I turn around, I read a review of a picture book that sends me to the bookstore and library. Last year, when I was on The Committee, every book was delivered to my doorstep. This year I am busy scrambling—scrambling to read reviews from all over and scrambling to get the books into my hand so I can judge for myself.
So, pencils ready for your next assignment?
Here are the books we will discuss over the next few weeks. If a few books pop up that we have missed, we will add them in at the end.
