Board Book Reviews are Back

TL;DR ~ New page for board book reviews!  This series will no longer be in chronological order.

Writing these blog maintenance posts is always a bit weird.  I don’t like to put the information in a book review, but can’t think of another way to get the word out to those of you who read these posts via WordPress or email.

The last time I had the camera, one of the things I got done was photographing a good number of board books from our diverse board book collection.  However, in real life books don’t always stay on the shelf (or to be photographed pile) the way they start off.

Our eighth addition to the board book collection didn’t get any pictures taken, even though I had a review all written and ready to go.  This is probably a testament to how much the kids have enjoyed that book, although it could just as well have been me absentmindedly moving it.

After that, I just stalled out on doing board book reviews, even as we built up a pretty impressive collection.  However lately, having seen a few people find my blog based on this review series, it reminded me why I started it – there aren’t many resources available for finding diverse board books.

So I went ahead and made a page for listing all of the diverse board books we own, and added links to those I’ve reviewed.  From now on, these reviews will be skipping around a bit, but probably still roughly chronological.  The reviews are short, but photographing and formatting them takes a long time, especially if the book’s in heavy use and I can’t lay hands on it to photograph!
