I am thrilled beyond belief to announce that Little Lamb Books has moved, and is now a part of the Wahsington DC based Catholic Information Center's new website dedicated to Children's books: CIC KIDS.
The Catholic Information Center is a bookstore / gathering place in Washington, D.C., committed to making the Catholic Church alive in the hearts and minds of men and women living and working in our nation’s capital. Through a variety of spiritual, intellectual, and professional programs, the CIC offers the tools to live an integrated life and to engage in all areas of human endeavors. The CIC was one of the first organizations I became involved with when I moved to Washington, and it is wonderful to become officially a part of their ministry, and to broaden the scope of my little blog. I am humbled and honored to be a part of their work!
We're still busy elves, trying to upload the past 4 years worth of content, and add new stuff as we go, so please be patient with us as we launch. Not to worry: we're going to be reposting all the yearly best-of roundups and lots of great Christmas and Religious books in the coming weeks, to help you with your holiday shopping. Eventually all of Little Lamb Books content will be uploaded there, as well as new posts, and even some new contributors!
Thank you for all your encouragement and support and feedback through the years. I am always happy to see a book I discovered on the shelf of a friend's nursery, or to hear from a reader about their children loving this character or that character. And I am so excited to continue that work, and see it grow!
Come see us over at CIC Kids!
Lots of love,
Nota Bene: If there is a specific book you had bookmarked here, please drop me a line to inquire after it. I'm happy to help.

Margaret Perry is an avid reader and collector of children's literature. When she was young, at the Children's Library, she would start at "A" and work her way through the alphabet, 15 books at a time. Now she does the same thing in bookshops.
Her favorite children's books are:
+ Peter Pan and Wendyby J. M. BarrieShe started Little Lamb Books in honor of her grandmother, to promote children's books that contain exceptional beauty in both narrative and illustration, a sense of wonder, and hopefully a touch of whimsy and silliness.
+ The Search for Deliciousby Natalie Babbit
+ A Hole Is to Digby Ruth Krauss and Maurice Sendak
The Little Lamb Books Bookshop is powered by Amazon. 10% of the proceeds Margaret receives from purchases made through the Little Lamb Books Bookshop go to literacy charities, such as The Biblioteca Project in Honduras.
