Earlier this week GOODNIGHT, MANGER was reviewed by John A. Sellers, the children’s reviews editor at Publishers Weekly. The review was part of KidLit TV‘s “2015 Holiday Children’s Book Special” which aired on STORYMAKERS, an entertaining KidLit TV talk show, hosted by Rocco Staino, Contributing Editor at School Library Journal, a contributing writer at The Huffington Post, and Director of Empire State Center for the Book. His special guests for the holiday-themed episode were John A. Sellers of Publishers Weekly, Maria Russo, children’s book editor for the The New York Times, and John Schumacher (aka Mr. Schu), Ambassador of School Libraries for Scholastic and former K-5 teacher-librarian.
The episode runs approximately half an hour but it is well worth the watch, so grab a cup of eggnog and cozy up for 3o fun-filled minutes of festive kidlit book talk!
If you don’t have time for the whole show, please take a peek at the GOODNIGHT, MANGER review which begins at 24:40 and runs about two minutes.

Finally, I want to thank KidLit TV for being such a fabulous resource for kid lit fans of all ages. Comprised of a diverse group of parents, educators, librarians, kid lit creators, and award winning filmmakers, KidLit TV works creatively to bring great books to kids. Their self-described mission is to create fun new ways to reinforce an appreciation of reading that children will carry with them for the rest of their lives. They are doing a great job and have even been awarded the Parents’ Choice Gold Award! What a wonderful contribution they are making to the world of children’s literature!
