As a way to mark today, I’d like to share the following websites with children’s book writers and parents of young girls.
The first, created by Naomi Burman-Shine, describes Naomi’s inspiration for her rhyming picture book, Stonely’s Pet Dinosaur, and the work she put in to its post-publication launch. Anyone aspiring to success as a children’s picture book writer will find valuable information about the book launching process in this blog post.
The second post, The Best Feminist Books for Younger Readers (from the Book Riot website), summarizes the author’s favorite feminist books for younger readers. We need more books like these! Girls matter. Girls count. Girls ROCK. Let’s give them positive literary examples to follow from the very start.
