I am so lucky to spend my life working with books and stories. I've run groups for babies, toddlers and their parents in libraries, reading stories and introducing children and carers to great books; I spend time writing and I'm Editor-at-Large for the magnificent independent publisher, AlannaMax in the UK.
In my spare time, I read - what a wonderful life!
There are some Children's Books on my shelves (obviously) but for a more comprehensive selection of children's recommendations, look at Lulu's shelves:

As it happens, we're underway with 2 new Leo titles: Leo Loves his Mommy and Leo Loves his Daddy. The amazing illustrator, Ruth Hearson, has just completed the rough drawings and is about to start the art. And we just got the OK on the next Lola - she's staying over on her own for the first time at her cousin's house. Watch this space! (I'll post developments on my web page: annamcquinn.com.
Hugs to you and your daughter, Anna(less)
