I ran into my old boss the other day. Not in real life — he lives in Chicago and I live near Boston — but on social media. I noticed that he had started another new comany, a weight loss company, called Retrofit: Data Driven Weight Loss. My college roommate has a new weight loss company too which I posted on and did a giveaway. Was this a coincidence? Were they similar concepts? I was intrigued and determined to get another great giveaway for my readers!
The Schneider Family Book Awards honor an author or illustrator for a book that embodies an artistic expression of the disability experience for child and adolescent audiences. I really like how these books let kids walk in the shoes of another and I find the themes of “trying to fit in versus accepting themselves and their family members” to be universal for all children.
Please welcome my guest author, Bola of SlimyBookworm.com, with her list of favorite children’s books for 2011. I am managing to make this into a short series of posts. I’ll continue with other guests’ favorite kid and young adult lit of 2011 until I run out of volunteers. Bola runs an online children’s bookstore so she is VERY qualified as both a bookseller and a mom. Please check out her eStore and her blog too!
