Nearly two weeks into this new year, 2021, and we have witnessed unprecedented events in human history. In looking back at both the One Little Word posts for 2020 (here and here) and the Happy New Year 2021---One Little Word, it has become more evident than ever how quickly days, weeks, and months can develop in unexpected ways, ways we can never have imagined. This makes each moment we are here a challenge and a joy, both to be embraced.
This is my third and final post featuring 2020 books before shifting to 2021 releases. It is with gratitude for the work of dedicated authors and illustrators these books are presented. My choice of One Little Word is assigned to each title. Links to the author's, illustrator's, and publisher's websites (or social media accounts) are supplied. Other pertinent resources are provided. The books are displayed in order of release date. Happy reading to you. May this year, 2021, be a year of change, change for the good, one book, one person, at a time, coming together.

For persons, readers, dedicated to children's literature, it is known the quality of writing and illustrating is superior in many respects. Creators of words and art for children, in its many formats, exhibit a singular passion for their profession. It is evident in their ability to take us easily into new realms or our own worlds. They endear us to characters. They readily make us laugh or cry. They help us to see with fresh eyes.
