Well, my friends, summer is coming to a close, which means kicking the Aardvark back off, and up a notch. The school year is starting for many of us — Little E, astonishingly, is off to junior kindergarten — and September always feels like a time for new beginnings and for new books. You can expect new reviews here every Wednesday, and lots of other fun surprises in the weeks and months to come. The Aardvark has been snuffling all summer and we have a great lineup of picture books to bring your way. Stay tuned and keep turning pages!
