Feature and Follow Friday #32

A weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read & Parajunkee's View

How it Works: 

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you visit the blogs of our illustrious hosts and leave your name on the post using using the linky tools, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to Wordpress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don't have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.

This Week's Question: 

What are some of your favorite picture books - either current ones or ones from your childhood.

This Week's Answer: 

This is such a good question! Sad to say I'm not sure I really remember many picture books, that was far to long ago plus I was reading chapter books before it was cool (reading hipster... NBD). But I do remember being completely obsessed with those Little Golden Books. We had a million of them in my house and I used to love reading them. I also really loved Madeline. I remember feeling such a connection to the fearless little redhead living in Paris. I wanted to be her soooo bad! As for current ones there are these amazing picture books that are versions of classics called "BabyLit". I bought my niece the Alice in Wonderland one for Christmas and I plan to buy her so many more, they're so adorable!

How about you? What's your favorite picture book from childhood? Leave me a comment with your thoughts.

 And remember this is a blog hop so take a look around and if you like what you see give me a follow and leave me a comment so I can follow back. I am indifferent to the manner in which you follow so pick your poison: GFC, Bloglovin, or Twitter. I also just started a BookTube channel so if you're an old subscriber you can check me out HERE! I've been posting videos every Friday! Thanks for dropping by, Happy FF and HAPPY READING!
