The children’s book guru, Anita Silvey, has a lot to say when it comes to children’s books. Not only does she publish and evaluate books, but she  has also written the, “Children’s Book a Day Almanac,” and maintains a blog version where links are available to further discover books. These blog posts are described as a “love letter” to the book and/or author, and these books aren’t your regular ol’ books, but ones that she believes can spark 9781596437081the love of reading for kids.

Silvey is worth the follow and worth the read if you are a teacher, librarian, or parent trying to stay connected to books from classics to new children’s books.
