April is National Poetry Month! I am a true lover of poetry. My mom says when I was little I had a fascination with certain words, especially odd sounding ones, and loved to sit in her lap and listen to poems read aloud. Do you have a favourite poem? As a kid I loved “Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout” by Shel Silverstein. Nowadays I devour contemporary love poems, with those by Ada Limón among my favourite. I’m sure kids will discover many future favourites in these 2019 poetry collections.

My Instagram peeps finally came through and voted for my favourite category! Being *a bit* of a fantasy lover, I couldn’t pass up a chance to feature new releases starring magical creatures. Unicorns, fairies, mermaids, dragons, giant fish monsters. They are all here, folks. You’ll have a hard time keeping these on your shelves.

I ran an Instagram poll this week asking which booklist you wanted to see next: Feelings or Mythical Creatures. I have to admit, I was rooting for the magical, but I stick to my word!
Social emotional learning is the process by which children understand and manage their emotions, show empathy towards others, and maintain positive relationships with the people around them. Asking children how a character feels when reading a book is a great way to help them develop these skills. Here’s some 2019 picture books that make it really easy to do just that.

Do you have a favourite moment of your work week? I feel like 99% of the time mine happens in babytime. I mean, I got high-fived by a 10-month old today. Hard to beat that in my opinion.
I’m always on the lookout for new books to share in babytime, either to read aloud or to put on display. Here are some 2019 picture books that I think will be great to share at babytime. I haven’t read any of these yet. They just got that cover appeal. Let me know in the comments what new releases you are looking forward to sharing in babytime this year!
