My Sunday #morningcoffee (and candy corn) read is LOVE, TRIANGLE by Marcie Colleen and @bobsheabooks, a pointed, punny tale of friendship I roundly enjoyed!

How about something sweet today? “Hurry up! We have places to be. Places to be happy and blue and purple.” And so the story goes, about the many places one can be and emotions one can have. I love the closing “And I’ll be with you, and you’ll be with me.”
.
Pay attention to the delightfully soft illustrations- there is a story there too.
.
Note: I was also impressed with the wider vocabulary used in this book. Words like “sullen”, “jubilant” and “acrobatic” to name a few.
.
A beautifully soft book about emotions and the reassuring presence of people in our lives.

It’s National Pasta Day and we’re already looking forward to a celebratory plate of pasta for dinner! If you need a recipe, check out our cookbook collection in the 600 shelves in our non-fiction collection.

You’ll find both traditional and modern recipes in books like PASTA MODERN by @francinesegan, FRANKIE AVALON’S ITALIAN FAMILY COOBOOK by Frankie Avalon, EVERYONE IS ITALIAN ON SUNDAY by @rachaelray, and CHLOE’S VEGAN ITALIAN KITCHEN by @chefchloe Coscarelli.

If you’re laying off the carbs, maybe you can just imagine enjoying a plate while reading STICK DOG SLURPS SPAGHETTI by Tom Watson.

Happy Marvelous Middle Grade Monday! There have been some great new MG releases lately. Thank you to @simonkids @harperchildrens @disneybooks @penguinkids @randomhousekids for these recent arrivals. -

We’re looking forward to reading a few of these. Most all of these will be donated to my daughter’s new school. She’s been begging me to take books to her library, because “it’s not as fully stocked as her old one & needs new books kids want to read.” Kids at her previous school loved many of these titles / series. We’re taking these up in the next week or two so I won’t get a chance to read them all, but it’s more important to get these in the hands of their targeted reading audience than sit on my shelf & wait to be bed. However, we will have series spotlights coming soon! -

Some more details from the book. I gave a little nod to two towns on the north shore of Massachusetts. One was Haverhill-A former shoe mill town where I got my first library card-and one whose downtown streets and shops were such a memorable part of my childhood. The other is Newburyport, where I lived briefly as an adult. (locals will know The Grog notation on expense record) #MrBiddles #picturebook #lobster #map #massachusetts #haverhill #newburyport #thegrog #kidlit #kidlitart #tourism #masstourism #haverhillma #newburyportma #icecream #roadtrip #authorillustrator #details #touristattraction #library #harperchildrens

Detail from the endpapers of Mr. Biddles. One of my favorite things about making a picture book is injecting it with teeny details that mean little to anyone else but me. 43 was the number of my childhood home. I also did this in my first book-and will probably continue to as long as there is a residence in my books. Anyway, here is my character as a wee bambino... #MrBiddles #picturebook #creativeprocess #books #kidlit #kidlitart #illustration #childrensbooks #baby #detailsdetails #endpapers #bookmaking #authorillustrator #cat #character #harpercollinschildrens #diaperpin #vintage #harperchildrens

Detail from a page of Mr. Biddles... For this scene-where Mr. B meets Hobson's family, I channeled Harold Hecuba from Gilligans island. I always thought he was a funny character, with his plaid jackets and oversized black frames-played by Phil silvers of Sergeant Bilko fame. So there you have it. #1960s #tv #gilligansisland #haroldhecuba #movieproducer #harperchildrens #picturebookillustration #friendship #character #mrbiddles #picturebook #maine #coastal #handshake #process #inspiration #authorillustrator #cats #lobsters #childrensbooks #librarian

my cousin shared this awesome boomerang with me. I love seeing teachers introducing PIG with their students! 😍 educators, there’s a free Curriculum Guide PDF download aligned with common core grades 3-7 on my website, and contact if you want me to visit/Skype with your class. Link in profile. .
