My Recommendation

Such a cute and beautiful story. And the illustrations are just so adorable and sweet, they are sure to charm young readers. Also through these adorable illustrations and beautiful story The Lullaby Monster gave a message that is very important for young readers.

If you're a parent who wants to buy a book that has beautiful illustrations, very lucid language which is apt for a child and also has a message. This is the one for you.
Here’s a cute bookmark to match the cover, created by Paula Nasmith

Wednesday Writing Update

Hello Readers,

I’m keeping myself honest with weekly writing updates.

So this week I’ve been on vacation. Just keeping it real. Even so, I’ve done four critiques on picture books in progress. So that’s something.

And today I spent a little time revising a fiction pb that is loosely based on an actual person of historical significance. I’d say it’s a slice of life from their childhood as I’ve imagined it.

And that’s all folks! Tune in next Wednesday for more updates.
