Hungry Bunny is a 2019 Bank Street College Best Book

From their website: In choosing books for the annual list, reviewers consider literary quality and excellence of presentation as well as the potential emotional impact of the books on young readers. Other criteria include credibility of characterization and plot, authenticity of time and place, age suitability, positive treatment of ethnic and religious differences, and the absence of stereotypes. Each book accepted for the list is read and reviewed by at least two committee members and then discussed by the committee as a whole.

Early Childhood Books

Early childhood books are often overlooked by the adult world. Babies seem to be there just to be cuddled (wish is extremely important!), but we're are seldom aware of all the things that are happening in order for them to become part of the human world.
I've had the honor to be invited by Yolanda Reyes, founder of Espantapajaros Taller, author and early childhood researcher, to take part in this seminar about books that I find appropriate for children 0-3.

The Fine Art of Illustration - a podcast

I've been invited to take part in an episode of this interesting podcast on Illustration by talented illustrators Jose Rosero and Randy Mora. We talked about illustration as a fine art and as an artistic object. It's in Spanish, I hope you can listen to it.
This is the link.
