Onward to New Super Fun Adventures

Hello, Bird Meet Worm Readers! Thank you for tuning in for more than 10+ years of illustrations, picture book news, creative interviews and children's book reviews! Today I'm an announcing the immediate retirement of the blog. I will still keep all the past posts visible for readers to continue to enjoy, but there will be no new posts.

But don't be sad! When one thing ends, another begins, and I invite you to subscribe to my seasonal, monthly newsletter, the Super Readers Club, on Substack. The Super Readers Club features seasonal picture book favs, event news, original Kitty & Cat comics and Super Star Interview Minis with kidlit authors and illustrators—all things you've enjoyed here in the past. It also features special quarterly issues in March, June, September and December that include the following super fun bonuses: seasonal reading bingos, printable activity kits and story starter prompts. I hope you'll join me on this new, super fun adventure! XO

Cheer, Super Jane
