Kid Konnection: Books Always Everywhere

Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week, I'm going to share with you a picture book about books!

Summary: Babies and toddlers join in an exuberant celebration of books of all shapes and sizes in this charming picture book. For little kids, books can be anything from a chair, to a tower, to a hat. But once little ones discover the magical world that can be found inside a book, the best thing a book can be—is a book! This joy of discovery is evident on the faces of these little kids as they open up a book and find a favorite story. In short, this book about books is so adorable and tempting, it will have toddlers and parents running to libraries and bookstores everywhere. -- Random House

When I saw the title for the picture book BOOKS ALWAYS EVERYWHERE by Jane Blatt and illustrated by Sarah Massini, I knew I had to feature it this week. I am leaving for Book Expo America in New York in just a few days, and needless to say, I have books on the brain!

BOOKS ALWAYS EVERYWHERE is truly a celebration of books. This hardcover book is perfect for toddlers with its gorgeous illustrations and very simple text. Books can in all shapes and sizes, but as all parents know, books can be used for anything... even a tower or a hat!

It's probably no surprise that I loved this book because it shows just how special books can be especially to the youngest of readers. I have a feeling that toddlers will love the many ways that books are portrayed in this story. In addition, the beautiful pictures are sure to entertain readers of all ages.

BOOKS ALWAYS EVERYWHERE is available next week in hardcover. As a mom who remembers how rough toddlers can be on books, I'd love to see this one released in the future as a board book! It would be perfect for little hands; and because the text is only a few words per page spread, I think young ones would enjoy reading it to themselves!

BOOKS ALWAYS EVERYWHERE is highly recommended to book lovers -- young and old alike!

Thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy of this book.

I think I will have to get this book for my sweet little niece. I've been sending her books like crazy to be sure she is a reader and she is only 6 months! Have a great time at BEA. I need to get there some year!
