boo·ka·raz·zi: A freelance blogger who pursues celebrities who read books, to create posts that promote children’s literature.
As announced on Instagram by Kylie Jenner (and reported just about everywhere online) on February 4, 2018, Jenner gave birth to a baby girl—her first child with boyfriend Travis Scott. Congratulations! She shared a poignant video that chronicled her pregnancy that has since gone viral, of course. And wouldn’t you know it, at nine minutes and 1 second we spotted these glam and love-filled picture books resting on a white floating shelf . . .

This is when my heart is happy.

With language that is lyrical but also direct, toddlers will be empowered by this new vocabulary and able to practice articulating and identifying their own emotions. With whimsical illustrations and an irresistible die-cut heart that extends through each spread, this unique feelings book is gorgeously packaged.
