31daysThe time is almost here! Almost here I say! Cast your mind back a year ago when, for whatever reason, I decided it might be a good idea to do 31 days of Best Of lists as they pertain to children’s books. That was then. This is now. And I am prepared to do it again.

Yep! Starting later this week you’re going to see the very familiar 31 Days, 31 Lists back in play. I warn you that some days I will be tired and the most I’ll be able to work up will be the titles and the covers. Other days I’ll offer scintillating commentary per book. Oh, it will be a blast! I can hardly wait to start!
