It's here!!!

Alicia Padrón's wonderful book "I love you all year around" arrived yesterday, and what a treat!  Her soft and sweet illustrations enhance the story and add an extra layer of tenderness to a tale about the love of a child and a mother through the seasons of the year.  It's both a picture book and a pop-up book, and Alicia's illustrations of a loving mouse family are just delightful. My favorite pop-up page shows both mother and child, all bundled up, making snow angels (and I don't even like winter!)

Thank you, Alicia, for the giveaway and for the chance of having my very own signed copy of your first picture book (I know there'll be many, many more!)
