I'm going to interrupt all this talk of islands and beaches to talk about... picture books. I missed Write a Review Wed, which is okay because I don't really do reviews. But I do like to talk about picture books, especially those by new writers. So, here are a couple of new releases.
Two of a Kind
This book is brand spanking new! (Oh no, LiLa, now my blog will come up on "spanking' searches!) It was released on July 7th and it is Jacqui's second PB. I can't tell you how great it is because I haven't read it yet. But I can say, if you have never been to Jacqui's Room, you are really missing out. Jacqui's posts always crack me up.
This first book, by Linda Sanders-Wells, came out in April. But Linda's blog, Swell Books, is brand spanking new. She started it yesterday! And guess who she is crediting for giving her the kick in the pants that she needed? Yup, me :) If I had a Hop! Plop! sale for every person I got started blogging, I would have the Amazon ranking of The Help. Okay, not. But it would be a lot better than where it currently is at almost a million.
So check out these two books and these two blogs. And someone please review them so I know if I should buy them! (Kidding. I plan to order from Amazon right after I check my sales ranking)
