    I love browsing through This Picture Book Life, Danielle! I love the variety of picture books you share; it’s helpful to check out books I normally might not pick up but also celebrate some favorites along with you. Love it!

  5. mariagianferrari says:

    Thanks, Danielle! I especially loved Flashlight and Kate Messner’s book. Christopher Silas Neal’s art is perfect for it. I just interviewed him for the book launch for Another Kind of Hurricane, by Tamara Ellis Smith, on Emu’s Debuts last week. He has a PB coming out with Candlewick next year called Everyone 🙂

  6. Caroline says:

    For the second giveaway comment: I found out about you via Twitter first, and I’m pretty sure it was either Carter Higgins or Julie Falatko tweeting about you and your blog. 🙂 Happy blog-a-versary!

  12. I found out about you through a very positive comment in a Facebook group.

  13. Those are such great books… I need them! They’ll look fantastic in my library! 😉

  14. Comment #1 – what I like most are your pairings of fab pb’s with the your own artwork or that of other indie artists. Introduces me to people and things that might otherwise take me years to discover!

  15. Comment #2 – Walking in Caroline’s shoes – it must have been Carter or Julie that linked me to your fun, fab blog. Happy #2 and here’s to many, many more!
