My favorite thing about @nctegram is being exposed to new books. Here’s one of several I’m bringing home. Hope all my teacher friends out there scored, too!!!

Love is a finalist in the picture book category of the Goodreads Choice Awards. There are some other great books in the final round, too. (Like, have you read Julian is a Mermaid? Wow!) Link in the first comment. Check it out and vote if you want to weigh in. @thelorenlong @penguinkids

The bolts may have moved from San Diego to LA, but we’re still representing over here!

Carmela Full of Wishes is about a brother and sister who get on each other’s nerves a little. But underneath their mutual annoyance is love. And loyalty. After hearing the story read aloud, this young guy went and bought the book for his sister who couldn’t be there. “You’re a good big brother,” I told him. “And that matters.” #carmelafullofwishes #picturebook #kidlit

When my people show up to an event! @the_absolute_photography

Happy Tuesday! (Photo cred @carolinedelasun)
