(Children’s) BookNotes, June 22, 2016

Summer is officially upon us, but that doesn’t mean we should ditch all our books completely. Here’s a round-up of headlines in the world of children’s picture books this week.

We’re trumpeting an announcement today:

Literary Features Syndicate is going on summer vacation!

That means we’ll be posting less frequently over the next eight weeks. But don’t fret, there’s still some great stories heading your way–we’re even reviewing a trio of independently published books, a first for LFS!

Keep on reading and have a wonderful summer!
