EBYR All Over: May 8, 2015
Welcome back to 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.
News from Eerdmans & Elsewhere
- In Search of the Little Prince by Bimba Landmann was featured in “Joy and Imagination,” the collection of spring children’s books reviews by Foreword Reviews. “Every page of this book,” writes the reviewer, “is an adventure. . . . This heartfelt biography inspires stargazing and internal reflection.” The article also featured this illustration from the book at the top of the article.
- Speaking of Bimba Landmann, she was kind enough to answer Five Questions this week on Eerdlings. “I tried to make the reader see normal things as non-normal things, as magical things. Love gives us this power. I hope the book gives children the feeling they can go toward the things they love, always.”
The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch was reviewed by The Nonfiction Detectives, who outlined the narrative and explained its importance to a full understanding of the fight for civil rights. The book was also featured in an article on Mark Mitchell’s blog, How to Be a Children’s Book Illustrator, that recapped the 2015 TLA conference. Mark created a video with interviews from several publishing reps at TLA; start around the 5:45 to see EBYR President and Publisher Anita Eerdmans!
- The Legend of Saint Nicholas was reviewed by The Christian Library Journal.
- The Right Word was included in the International Literacy Association’s Teachers’ Choices 2015 Reading List.
