As I wrote last time, Mom was taking our picture book manuscript about one of my Paris adventures to NYC. She shared it at the big winter SCBWI Conference (apparently that’s the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators…THE group for people working on children’s books!).

Mom received great feedback on the manuscript, got good tips/info, connected with old friends she met at the LA Conference in August, and made new friends.

Mom also brought home FUN books from the conference and our favorite NYC bookstore, Books of Wonder. It’s really neat… you have to go there when in the city!

Our new books include but aren’t limited to…Brian Floca‘s Moonshot, Selina Alko‘s Every-Day Dress-Up and Dan Yaccarino‘s Unlovable.

Next phase…we need an illustrator!
