The office is a bit quieter these days. Everyone is frantically trying to finish up the Fall 2013 season and begin the Spring 2014 season. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle. Every once in awhile I have to stop and take a step back to see the big picture. For me, the big picture is that I love the books I’m working on, and I hope everyone else will love them too. One of my Fall 2013 series that stands out right now is Learning Parade. (The set will be available in both hardcover and board book. Who doesn’t love a good early concept board book?) For this series we went with a great author/illustrator duo that we’ve used in the past. The author is Charles Ghigna, known as Father Goose, and the illustrator is Ag Jatkowska. Ag’s bright illustrations really help to compliment Charles’ lively rhymes. This duo has worked with us before on two other series—My Little Planet and I See. In the Learning Parade series readers will learn about Numbers, Colors, Shapes, and the ABC’s.
I can hardly wait to see Learning Parade completed. It will be available for purchase in July. Feel free to check out Charles’ and Ag’s other titles on our website: www.capstoneyoungreaders.com
