Blog Tour and Giveaway: The Friendly Bookshelf

I love giving away picture books, but today's giveaway is extra special, because I love the message in this book.  I've partnered with The Children's Book Review and Blossom Children's Media Group to celebrate the publication of The Friendly Bookshelf by Caroline and Katherine Brickley.  The Friendly Bookshelf was written to build self-confidence and to promote inclusivity, which is so important and should start with the very young. Who doesn't love a picture book that reinforces kindness?



Learn More About the Book:

The Friendly Bookshelf is written by Caroline and Katherine Brickley, illustrated by Daniela Pérez-Duarte.   Ages 3+ | 32 Pages  Publisher: Blossom Children’s Media Group | ISBN-13: 9780997782714

Publisher’s Synopsis: "Meet Bibli, a brave little library bookshelf in search of a story about someone like him . . .Once upon a time, in a library like any other, there lived a little bookshelf named Bibli who carried a BIG question on his shelves: “Could there be a story somewhere about a bookshelf like me?” Bibli is told that bookshelves are supposed to hold stories, not have ones of their own. But everything changes when he meets Cassie, a girl longing for a friend just as much as Bibli longs for a story to relate to. Bibli learns that with kindness, confidence, empathy, and friendship, even your biggest dreams can come true—and that everyone has an important story worth sharing. The Friendly Bookshelf is a social-emotional learning (SEL) research-based book and the first-ever picture book about a bookshelf. Written to build self-confidence and self-esteem as well as encourage inclusivity, Bibli’s story empowers children to be brave, be a friend, and always be your-shelf! Readers will be inspired to go beyond the final page of the book and share their own stories, as well as be the pioneers of a kinder, more inclusive world where everybody (and every bookshelf!) belongs."

You can purchase a copy of The Friendly Bookshelf at Amazon and Bookshop.  To learn more about the book, visit the website.
