In the month of February, The Brown Bookshelf will be "highlighting 28 of the best and brightest authors and illustrators in the field of children’s literature." Some names will be familiar perhaps, but many will be new-to-you. I look forward to following this month-long celebration. To find the complete list of 28 authors and/or illustrators, please visit their site's official page about the event: 28 Days Later. The celebration opens with Christopher Paul Curtis' Elijah of Buxton and closes with Sherri L. Smith's Sparrow.
