Just a quick reminder about the ACL meeting this Friday, October 12, 2012, 9am-1pm at the Oakland Main Library: http://www.bayviews.org/calendar.html . Along with reviewing and our regular business, we will be discussing Distinguished Books for 2012.
Two recent articles concerning picture books are worth a look. One describes problems with picture book design that can be subtle but points out critical flaws: http://www.hbook.com/2012/10/blogs/calling-caldecott/things-that-make-me-cry-real-tears/ .
And thanks to Helen Bloch for catching this article from a few months ago, recommending books for babies: http://seattletimes.com/html/books/2018290302_kidsbooks28.html .
