Holidays, vacations and no storytimes – all of those add up to no posts for a few weeks. We’re sorry about that. Perhaps things were hectic in your life as well, and you didn’t have time to check in with this blog. In that case, welcome back.

I’d like to hear from you. What were some of your favorite picture books of the year?
