Kate DiCamillo recently posted her trailer for Tiger Rising. She's narrating it and just like I cried when I read her beautiful book, I wanted to cry at the trailer. I'm not usually a fan of books turned into movies but I might be surprised by this one.
In more tv news...Previously, I mentioned Apple TV is adapting some Maurice Sendak books. Well, they aren't the only ones! Check out some new books that are coming to a screen near you. (As in, so close they are in your living room.)
I hope you are buying books for holiday gifts this year. And I hope you are buying them from independent bookstores. According to this article, at least one independent bookstore every week of the pandemic. Some independent bookstores are getting creative, offering subscription services. Eye See Me, an African American independent children's bookstore in University City, Missouri offers a subscription service that sends two new African American children's books to your doorstep each month. You get to choose the age range of your book box so it is tailored to your child. What a great way to increase the diversity of your bookshelves!
