Michael Rosen is Children's Laureate

Michael Rosen has been named the British Children’s Laureate.  An author for over 30 years, Rosen has written some of the all-time favorite books of many.  Story times just wouldn’t be the same if we couldn’t read restless toddlers We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.  And if you haven’t read Michael Rosen’s Sad Book, then run run run and get your hands on it.  It is a treat to see an author with this range of quality writing get an honor like this. 

Great Review Source

Got an email today from Cheryl Rainfield, who does a great job of providing book reviews of picture books and books for teens.  She has great taste in books, clever titles, interesting subject grouping, and a friendly written style.  She gives each title a star rating, but so many of her choices are winners that it is hard to go wrong.
