Hello and welcome to books together!  This website is the work of Anamaria Anderson (that's me), and I've been writing about children's books here since 2007.

I live in Arlington, VA with my husband, son Leo (age 13), and daughter Milly (age 9).


About me:

Professional development (selected):

  • The Caldecott Medal (ALSC/KT Horning, Spring 2011)
  • Drawn to Delight: How Picture Books Work (and Play) Today
    (ALSC Institute, June 2010)
  • KidLitCon (Washington, DC; October 2009)
  • The Newbery Medal: Past, Present and Future (ALSC/KT Horning, Summer 2009)

Please see my review policy for more information about what sorts of books I review at books together, and thank you for visiting!  I hope you'll come back soon.
