The Author and Illustrator Showcase
The Author Showcase is a special sponsored category dedicated to bringing awareness to as many children’s book authors and illustrators as possible, including mainstream, indie, and self-published authors and illustrators.
It’s time to foster a deeper awareness of the many authors and illustrators that are out there creating books for our young readers. This is your chance to discover many unexpected delights. Among the many Author Showcase articles on The Children’s Book Review, you can discover book reviews, author and illustrator interviews, book summaries, book trailers, and book related articles. All ages and genres are covered.
Here’s a little taste of what you can uncover in the Author Showcase:
