The forwordsbooks Catalog of Books-March 2010 Edition
When I decided to re-start forwordsbooks back in September, 2009, my intention was that I could easily have a revised catalog up and online within a month, maybe two. Clearly, I was delusional. Most definitely I had completely lost track of how much the world of Jewish children’s publishing has changed during the past 10 years.
By the end of December, I was thinking, “Oh well, it won’t be the 2009 Catalog of Books.” In January it was “I will never finish this.” However, in February, as I began to see some light shining at the end of this very long tunnel, I knew that I would find a stopping point. Not an end point mind you, a stopping point, because even as I write this there is a pile of books sitting on the floor of my office that I need to read and review, publishers are printing and sending out new books for consideration, editors are preparing new materials for production and authors and illustrators are working at their craft to bring us their latest creative ideas.
I look forward to reading, reviewing and bringing them all to you in updates and new editions to the forwordsbooks Catalog of Books. I can assure you, it will not be ten years and six months before you hear from me again.
