The Kissing Hand
By Audrey Penn

If this is the first you're ever hearing about The Kissing Hand then you need to get and read this book as soon as you are able. This is one of the books that I personally believe should be in every child's personal library, should be in every classroom, and should be accessible to all people with children. The book follows Chester Raccoon and how he ...

March is Reading Month! - #4 - The Family Book

The Family Book
By Todd Parr

If you aren't reading Todd Parr's books you need to change that right away, his books are amazing, and The Family Book is probably my favorite of his books. The book is simple yet complex in the writing and images. Todd covers so many different types of families from big and small, to same-sex, adoption, colors, and more. But it isn't even that th...

Alma and How She Got Her Name
By Juana Martinez-Neal

This book is gorgeous, I love the images, the story, and the message it sends. Starting off this book was a Caldecott Honor in 2019 and while Hello Lighthouse the 2019 winner of the Caldecott is a gorgeous book, I was surprised that Juana Martinez-Neal didn't take home the main award, but having it be an honor was at the very leas...

This next interview is super exciting for me. I got to talk with Kristin Bartley Lenz about her book The Art of Holding on and Letting Go which if you have not had the chance to check out you really need to. I've listened to the audio book, and read the actual book, and both options are wonderful, I recommend doing either! Check out this interview and check out Kristin's book!

Paul Bauer AKA Small Sounds

I am excited to introduce my brand-new blog, The Might-E Heroes Club! I am so excited to announce that my first interviewee on the blog is my friend Paul Bauer, aka Small Sounds! I had the pleasure of meeting Paul in 2015 at the first event I ever took Might-E to table. Paul was only a few spaces down from me, and I was entranced by his music, and the way that the kids just gravitated to him! When I was tossing around if I wanted to do this blog, I knew ...
