Things that make me sad: children's literature edition

  1. That Suzanne Kaufman has only written one children's book.
    "I Love Monkey". It's beautiful.
  2. Finding a personalized book with the recipient's name peppered throughout and signed by the loving grandma who picked it out...in a used bookstore.
    Oh, Chloe! Why didn't your parents save it?! Something that special shouldn't be discarded.
  3. That Mo Willems isn't writing any more Piggie & Elephant books.
    🐷🐘😭
  4. Discovering that a beloved book from my childhood is racist.
    Or, worse yet, borrowing a giant stack of racist books all at once.
