Writers are pretty creative about getting exposure for themselves and their books. Self-publishers especially are always experimenting with innovative ways to move the sales needle.
Like many of you, I've tried a little of everything at this point, and the list of stuff that works is far, far shorter than the list of stuff that doesn't.
But what if I told you that you had a chance for some
Potty training is really hard. It took a long time for my son to really “click”. I bought these 2 books that really helped. One is called Pirate Pete’s Potty, and it features a button that triggers an applause sound to encourage the child to use the potty. Another book I used was “Boys Potty Time”, that came with stickers which you can give your child for effort, successful or otherwise! Every kid is different and for some its easier than for others but these tools definitely helped with my son’s learning. What method was useful for you?
I bought a Children’s e-book the other day called “Why? Because I love you”. It has really nice illustrations by Mary Lee. It is a beautifully illustrated book about the ways these cuddly characters, Little Pup and Grey Bear, show their love.
You can see more of her work in her website, or buy the book here
Thanks Dan for this lovely review of “Emilio in the Snow”!
You can read it here
This book is a classic, an “I spy” story with Rhymed text and gorgeous illustrations. Written and illustrated by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, Each Peach Pear Plum is one of the most popular picture books in public libraries. I found it in a clearance of books from a playgroup that we used to go. Lucky me.
The illustrations of Il Sung Na are absolutely adorable. I love the textures and the characters. It is a simple story, an elephant finds an umbrella but he doesn’t know what to do with it. Beautiful!
I bought new books for my son. One of them was “Lost and Found” of Oliver Jeffers. What a wonderful story, my son loves it, and now is the new favourite. Basically this boy, one day found a penguin at his door and he thinks he is lost…
Before this one , it was “How to catch a star” from the same author.
I love the illustrations and the simple but strong stories. My son laughs so much with the boy from the book. Really recommendable picture books for early ages.
You can find them in any book store or online in Amazon.
