Children’s picture books cultivate early love of reading, creatively imparting real life lessons.
“There’s nothing more wonderful than the sparkle in a child's eye when reading a picture book,” says Rita Lorraine Hubbard, New York Journal of Books reviewer, children’s book author, Lee & Low Publishers 2012 New Voices Award Winner.
An expert in this arena, Ms. Hubbard knows what appeals to children and can clearly identify those titles that effectively speak to a child, appealing to his/her interests, fears and overall life experiences in a visually creatively and imaginative package.
According to Ms. Hubbard, “The best children’s books are original, humorous, and full of characters that connect with readers to make their worlds seem more interesting and alive.”
Reviewer Hubbard covers new titles regularly. In January New York Journal of Books featured these picture book standouts. She cheered Author Jed Henry’s effort in Cheer Up, Mouse! (http://www.nyjournalofbooks.com/
Ms. Hubbard also recommended Spoonful by Benoit Marchon http://www.nyjournalofbooks.com/
