Alison Morris  Enthusiastic champion of children's books. I curate titles for nonprofit First Book, increasing access to books for kids in need. Opinions my own.

Really enjoying Mango Delight - new middle grade novel from debut author @fracaswellrhodenhyman , published by @sterlingbooks. The fabulous cover by @frankmorrison caught my eye immediately and made me move this one up on my reading pile!

@alvinaling and @pacylin - then and now. I love that these two childhood best friends grew up to be a dynamic author and editor duo, creating superb picture books, beginning readers, and middle grade novels. They gave a fantastic presentation to the Children's Book Guild of DC today and gave us all a sneak peek at Grace's next picture book, coming August of 2018. IT IS AMAZING! I can't wait for the whole world to fall under the spell of this new masterpiece! .....
