Book Friends Bookshop  http://vonnacarter.com/wordpress/book-friends-bookshop/
Over the past few years, the world of children's literature--particularly on social media--has grown increasingly negative. Yet there are many authors and illustrators who have remained kind and supportive to other authors in their online presence and in person. To honor and support these kind authors and illustrators, I have opened a new bookshop on my website. The authors and illustrators featured there range from the really big names to self-published authors with only one title to offer. This is a work in progress with new authors and illustrators being added every day. You'll find many Blueboarders there because this is the kindest place in the world of kidlit!

I hope you will stop by and visit!
