A note from Minedition US Books for Children's Editorial Director Maria Russo: "PANGOLINA has its first starred review! This means so much to us as the book’s proud publishers, and as concerned citizens of Earth. Pangolins – the only mammals with scales – are under grave threat from poachers and trafficking. Our beloved Dr. Jane Goodall has done it again.

I also love the warm, richly textured art by Daishu Ma. Who can resist helping this adorable creature? Especially now that she’s *starred*! More than ever, I now understand how these pre-publication honors can boost a book’s visibility.

I sincerely hope this book will galvanize interest in the fate of this gentle endangered species. Through the story of a baby pangolin who’s captured by hunters, but rescued by a brave little girl, Jane Goodall calls attention to the plight of these friendly fellow creatures."

Thanks to @houstonlibraryfinds for this brilliant post about potty books!

#repost Let’s talk about potty humor... my kids love it. [#reviewcopyprovided @tundrabooks ]

All potty humor books are not created equal, but I’ve got a few that are really cute and fun. Yep, you heard me. I said these books about poop are cute.

Poop AND an interactive element?!?! I’m pretty sure “Where Do You Poop?” was made specifically for my silly kids 😂. The read pull tabs to reveal the different types of poop from several animals, ultimately leading to how a child might potty. This would be a great potty training book!

Thank you so much @tundrabooks , @pubspotlight , @greystonekidsbooks and @mineditionus for our review copies.

What choice would you make to preserve nature this #EarthDay? This beautiful illustration by Annika Siems from ONE BOY'S CHOICE features a little boy of the Amazon who is excited to go on his first fishing trip with his grandad. He wants to catch the biggest fish! After hours of drifting among the water-lilies, at last they capture a huge Arowana. But, as Grandad explains, sometimes catching the biggest fish isn’t the best way to preserve the river’s bounty. This #picturebook is a stunning conversation starter written by Sueli Menezes.

Fall in love again with the classic favorite THE LITTLE MERMAID. A beloved Hans Christian Andersen tale, illustrated by Lizbeth Zwerger, one of the greatest children’s illustrators of our time. Peek inside here: https://geni.us/eny3A

The story of the little mermaid who fell in love with a human boy is well-known and loved by millions—but in the hands of internationally acclaimed illustrator Lisbeth Zwerger, it feels brand new. This poignant tale of unrequited love and self-sacrifice helped establish Andersen as one of the foremost writers of fairy tales in the world. Zwerger’s signature illustrations add fresh whimsy and charm to Andersen’s creation, and her art harmonizes perfectly with the carefully edited translation.

The king has spoken! #repost @klaas_verplancke_official At last, the time has come to unveil an animated peek (uploaded in 2 parts) into my upcoming brand new picture book, THE KING’s GOLDEN BEARD, a hairy tale for all ages! Originally published in the USA this book is yet worldwide available for pre-order (link in bio) in English, French and German and will be in stores in two weeks. I couldn’t have done this without the amazing @mineditionus team: @mariaclairerusso , Michael and Leonard, you are golden! Also massive thanks to the production and promo team, @penguinbooks for the distribution and @arevik.dor , @michaelyurchak and Tigran Kuzikyan for making this glittering trailer.

"A clever, biting fable!” — @publisherswkly

"A deeply satisfying allegorical tale.” — @kirkus_reviews

"A worthy addition to any library, and a useful tool for teaching humility and respect.” — @sljournal

“A witty story, exquisitely drawn!” — Award-winning artist, author, graphic designer @abstractsunday

“A new children’s classic” — @treyburley

“Rapunzel has nothing on the vainglorious king from this sly cautionary [picture book] …. “The law may be the law, but some laws are bad for your health,” a new king remarks with distinct schadenfreude. Readers fond of Jon Klassen’s karmic tales will agree.” — Booklist / @americanlibraryassociation

Stay tuned for more teasers and reviews or go to link in bio.

“Each spread in this creative board book ask the question, ‘Who says?’ about an animal noise, and readers lift away the page flaps to see the answer/animal. The flaps move in different directions depending on the animal, and amazingly the book stands up on its own (i.e. you can shelve it with the rest of your board books!).” – Let’s Talk Picture Books

3 Picture Books Get the Royal Treatment

It's a The New York Times Book Review for THE KING'S GOLDEN BEARD... congratulations! Klaas Verplancke's “The King’s Golden Beard” begins “a long long time ago,” as most fairy tales do. But as the story unfolds, what once might have been “long ago” seems eerily not so long ago at all... Often in fairy tales the king’s harebrained (in this case hairbrained) decree backfires... in Verplancke’s story, the king’s decree backfires on the king, whose vanity shatters him.
