beautiful upcoming titles from Simply Read

I am pretty exited about some of our upcoming titles. We just put them up on our website. Here is a sneak peek at some of them: The Swing, poem by Robert Louis Stevenson and illustrated by the fabulous Julie Morstad. (Soon to be an amazing book trailer too ;)
Everyone Eats by Julie Kuo--a fun and pretty board book.
Lily Loves by Kai Luftner and illustrated by Judith Drews--such a cute picture book!
And of course some super cuteness from Paola Opal, with new Simply Small titles including Zingy, a baby hummingbird.

A cute image I spied on Betsy Bird's Fuse # 8 blog. It makes me think of how wonderful it would be to decorate a whole house as though it were a children's book.
