Sally is new to the world of bookselling but a long-time publishing professional. She's had the privilege of working with many talented children's book authors including Eric Carle, Roald Dahl, Madeleine L'Engle, Christian Robinson, and Sophie Blackall. On her shelves, you'll find middle grade classics, contemporary and fantasy YA, select literary fiction, and lots and lots of picture books. Monday through Friday, Sally works as a strategy consultant for publishers and book-related non-profit organizations. And in her down time, you'll find Sally chasing down her misbehaving cat Charlie or escaping to a deserted beach.
Did you know there are roughly 6,500 spoken languages around the world? In English, "bear" starts with a "b" sound but ask around and you'll find that in at least three other languages, the word for bear begins with an "x". This is not your average alphabet or animal book! A Is for Bee is a fresh and brilliant take on both and a valuable primer on the exquisite diversity of the world's many languages.
"Will it be okay?" "Yes, it will." When you're feeling nervous, overwhelmed, cranky or confused, all you really want to hear is that it's going to be okay--that one way or another things will work out. In this warm hug of a picture book, a young child faces a variety of worrisome situations and immediately turns to her mom for answers. Whether it's the unfamiliar sounds of a thunderstorm or the fear of performing on stage or even the possibility of losing a loved one, the mother affirms her child's feelings and assures her that things will indeed be okay. Beautifully illustrated by the award-winning Jessica Love, Will It Be Okay? is perfect in times of unexpected stress or as an any day bedtime read-aloud.
