I just returned from BookExpo America in NYC, a 4 day gathering of publisher, booksellers, and related industries. Of course, I concentrated on the area specializing in children’s books. I saw wonderful new books that will be published this fall, ranging from delightful board books, gorgeous new pictures books for young children, fun and exciting early readers, and fantastic middle-grade books. I’m very excited to share these finds with our Max’s Book Club Members, and with new babies in our Baby Book Bags!
The buzz in the convention center was upbeat and optimistic. Print books are alive and well, especially for children, whose parents still want their kids to have the experience of touching pages, looking at wonderful artwork, and reading a great story.
