Today's #Kidlit Sticker (2014-2015 School Year Gallery)

If you spent a few minutes inside my brain during my morning commute to school, you would listen in on an internal conversation in which I plan which #kidlit sticker I'm going to wear and talk about throughout the day. Once the sticker is created, printed, and attached (with tape) to my body, I will add it to this blog entry. OK?

Sticker #52

"Picture books are important because they’re a great way for parents and their children to begin a childhood-long habit of reading together." - Chris Barton

Sticker #53

"In the few pages of an illustrated book, whole worlds are brought to life, and I knew that the creators of those special worlds — children’s book authors and illustrators — would want to help the children of Oklahoma once again be transported through the pages of a picture book." - Robin Preiss Glasser
Sticker #54 

"When I comb memories of my early childhood for standout moments, I am struck by how many of them are punctuated by experiences with picture books. " - David M. Schwartz 

Sticker #55

"Picture books can be tiny universes for adults, too." - Ame Dyckman 

Sticker #56

"We spend hours wondering if run is a better word than race. There’s a reason for all this work. If picture books are written well, in addition to telling a compelling story, listeners will ask to hear more and more books." -Ann Whitford Paul

Sticker #57 

"Why are picture books important? Because they show us the world."-Sophie Blackall

Sticker #58

"What we need to remember is this: when we read a picture book with a child, we are doing so much than teaching him to read or instilling in her a love of language, or improving literacy." - Anna Dewdney

Sticker #59 

"Picture books are the perfect way for people to share time together." - Sandra Markle 

Sticker #60 

"I clearly remember my first literary crush. The more I learned about him, the more firmly he wedged himself into my soft little five-year-old heart. He was cute. He was helpful. He was… gray." -Jill Esbaum

Sticker #61

"Whether I write and illustrate a story based on my own experiences or illustrate someone else’s story, for me and I hope for my readers it’s the same thing, a journey of a lifetime." -Ted Lewin

Sticker #62

Congratulations to Jacqueline Woodson, the winner of the 2014 National Book Award for Young People's Literature! 

Sticker #63

"Picture books are diverse. When roaming the aisles of a conference, library, or bookstore, the myriad of wonderful titles with wide-ranging stories, characters, settings, and artwork is always amazing and inspiring." -Loreen Leedy
