Hello! There are 3 picture books this time so there's a lot for kids since they are great read alouds for a variety of ages, but we are limited by what gets submitted and accepted. Kid's chapter books and middle grade novels haven't been submitted much yet, but we're looking for EVERYTHING! Hope you make it to the event on Sunday! - erin
