Illustrator Julie-Rowan-Zoch Supports #KidLitForHaiti With Just-Released Set of Year-by-Year Keepsake Board Books

KID LIT FOR HAITI:  Illustrator Julie Rowan-Zoch is donating her just-released Year-by-Year board book set: You’reHere! You’re One! You’re Two! (Bailiwick Press)

Books: three delightful board books illustrated by Julie Rowan-Zoch (author Karla Oceanak) just released from Bailiwick Press! 

What you get shipped to you or address of your choice:

 “Set of three adorable keepsake board books that double as congratulations or birthday cards for a newborn, one-year-old, and two-year old.”

REVIEW: In Publisher's Weekly on You're Here!:This exuberant ode to a baby’s accomplishments during its first year kicks off the Year-by-Year Books series (You’re One! and You’re Two! are available simultaneously). “So much, much will happen/ in 12 months to come!/ You’ll wriggle and smile/ and suck your wee thumb,” writes Oceanak beside newcomer Rowan-Zoch’s delicately colored sketch of a baby elephant. Eating, speaking first words, and crawling are other highlighted milestones, and while the rhymes occasionally skirt the edge of being too precious, Oceanak balances those moments with an acknowledgment of parental weariness amid all that first-year joy: “And we knock, knock on wood/ that you’ll sleep through the night.” 

(P.S. If you don’t win this auction, there’s no need to cry—you can still order this set from Julie’s local independent book stare, Old Firehouse Books  970-484-7898, or email: oldfirehousebooks@gmail.com )
