As a publisher of beautiful children’s books, Crickhollow Books is committed to quality over quantity.
Crickhollow Books and Crispin Books are intertwined imprints of their indie book publishing house that is based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They are also known for their amazing catalog of picture books that shine the spotlight on topics with social or environmental impact. With titles like Doyli to the Rescue, Tony and His Elephants, and Tortuga Squad, they have much to be proud of!
Crickhollow also offers a lot of middle-grade fiction focused on good values and a variety of books for adults, including books for writers on how to write well and get published.
“We love all our books just like parents love their kids,” shared Crickhollow Editor, Philip Martin. “Our homepage is a great showcase of what we do. As an indie press, we are like a parent that helps to bring something new and fresh into the world and then works for years to help it find its place, to grow to be part of a literary community of caring readers. Although we are microscopic in comparison to the big mega-houses, we work hard and take risks to produce quality books that can make a difference.” [Read more…]
The first On My Desk of 2018!
This is extra exciting because we have no shortage of awesome books to share!
This series got started because, with my role as Project Manager, I get to enjoy the avalanche of amazing multicultural books for kids that are donated to our project. My office currently looks like a small bookstore and I love every second of it.
Being appreciative over every book that crosses my desk, I wanted to find a fun way to share those books with the loyal folks who show up here to read every week and support this non-profit. In that moment, On My Desk | New Diverse Kids’ Books to Consider was born! It’s my way of sharing some amazing titles that don’t always get the attention they deserve.
Here’s what the Mailman Book Fairy brought me this week: [Read more…]
Recently we had an email come through from a NYC school teacher who was on the hunt for new diverse book titles for her home and classroom bookshelf. Her question to us was; did we have access to any new lists or multicultural book recommends?
We LOVE questions like that!
Truth-be-told, there are tons of booklists and resources on the Multicultural Children’s Book Day site and we are adding new ones all the time.
From blog posts, author visits, directories of book and even an e-book, MCBD has a ton of Diverse Booklists and Book Recommends for Teachers and Librarians. Here are a few resources that everyone might find helpful:
1.Our FREE Classroom Empathy/Understanding Refugees Kit has great classroom tools plus a bunch of great diverse book recommends.
