Author Katey Howes joins us to reveal the cover of her new picture book, MAGNOLIA MUDD AND THE SUPER JUMPTASTIC LAUNCHER DELUXE!
April is National Poetry Month. It’s a great time to share poetry that children will want to read all year long. Handing a child a book of poems about their favorite topic helps foster a love of poetry. Whether they are obsessed with dinosaurs or dogs, can’t get enough of Greek mythology or music, love sports or school, there’s a book of poetry for them.
When I learned nearly 2/3 of children from low income households do not own books, I was moved to take action. I created the initiative, Picture Book Pass it On to get quality books to kids in need. I’m a children’s author and mom, and I believe we should never underestimate the power of a picture book. I believe one book can make a difference in the life of a child. November is Picture Book Month. I welcome you to celebrate the power of picture books and accept the PBPiO call to action.
