The Children’s Bookshelf: Owl books, crafts and printables

If you’re stopping by to check out or link up to The Children’s Bookshelf, then I can safely assume that you are a lover of picture books. In which case you really must take a peek at the 2013 calendar I have created with the amazing help of 12 wonderful picture book illustrators. You can take a peek and get yourself a copy here.

PLEASE NOTE: My baby really can’t be too far away now. Today is her due date. There is a chance that The Children’s Bookshelf may fall to the wayside here at My Little Bookcase for a week or two until I find my feet but you can always visit one of these fantastic blogs in the meantime:
What Do We Do All Day?, No Twiddle Twaddle, Smiling Like Sunshine, Mommy and Me Book Club, and Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns.

Featured Post of the week:
