Welcome back to our EBYR All Over, a Friday roundup of all the EBYR-related news, reviews, interviews, and other interesting online content we can gather in a given week.
Roger Is Reading a Book was featured in the “Morning Mailbag” on Betsy Bird’s blog, A Fuse 8 Production. Betsy says the Roger in the book looks a little like kidlit luminary Roger Sutton. Hmm. We can’t decide. What do you think?
- Carrie Gelson featured The Right Word in a review of the top informational picture books of 2014, describing it as “a wonderful way to show children that our personal histories are influenced and shaped by the world we live in.”
- In his Saturday video message to Colby Sharp, John Schu shared his excitement about The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch, showing off the F & G copy he received last week. (It’s on the top of his stack!)
- Speaking of The Amazing Age, its author, Chris Barton, published our first Eerdlings author post on Monday. Chris kindly answered “Five Questions” about the book, its inspiration, and its
eight-year journey from idea to draft to book.
- We also published the first episode of the Coffee Break vlog in its new Wednesday time slot. Ahna and Katherine took a look at the process of illustrating a children’s book, and they shared some, well, illustrations of the process from Brother Hugo and the Bear.
- And finally, we published our first EerdFolk columns here on the blog this week. Katherine made quite a splash in her first plunge into the blogosphere with “Coffee Break Confidential,” sharing even more insider info on the illustration process. And Rachel shared the encouragement she’s found in two new EBYR spring titles, The Yes and Just for Today.
