Goodnight Songs - ‘Goodnight Moon’ Author’s Poetry Published Posthumously
Children’s book lovers are being treated to the debut of a new collection by an old favorite.
Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny author Margaret Wise Brown died at 42 in 1952, but she left behind what Publisher’s Weekly describes as a “treasure trove of unpublished manuscripts.” On Tuesday, Sterling Children’s Books released a collection of 12 of Brown’s unpublished children’s songs in a work titled Goodnight Songs.

This is awesome, but it instantly raises all my continuity-editor instincts to high alert — I want to cross-check all the books against the map. (I will restrain myself.)
Check out the website for Bethany Hegedus’ and Arun Gandhi’s new children’s book, Grandfather Gandhi.
A powerful read!
Happy birthday to Khaled Hosseini. March 4, 1965.
Finally got my bookshelves organized. I love the Barnes & Noble children’s classics.
Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!
"Like so many of our pivotal children’s book creators, Seuss struggled to get his first book published. He had submitted And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street to twenty-four to twenty-seven publishers—the number varied as he told the story over the years. During the 1930s, when picture books tended to carry serious messages, Dr. Seuss’s lighthearted nonsense went against the tide. According to the story Seuss told, he was walking down Madison Avenue, his last rejection in hand, on the way to his apartment to burn this manuscript. Then the fates intervened. Seuss ran into a Dartmouth classmate on the street and began telling his tale of woe. But the more Seuss talked, the broader the smile on his friend’s face became. Asking why the smile, Seuss learned that his friend had just been hired at Vanguard Press, a small publisher. As a new children’s book editor he needed something to publish.
