Blog / 2020 / Baby Sees Book Club

July 7, 2020

Over the last few months, as I put together Baby Sees ABCs, I have shared about everything I was reading. Originally, I did it because I’d gotten off social media and I was sad that I wouldn’t be able to share about my favorite reads there. But as I wrote these mini-reviews, I came to enjoy the process of reporting about everything I read—even figuring out how to not be too mean when I thought a book was terrible.

With this post, I am stopping doing these little write-ups. It’s been nine months to the day that I started. Baby Sees ABCs has been published and a bunch of the original artworks—the ones that aren’t already sold—are on display at Wildflowers Too, a gallery on Long Beach Island where I live in New Jersey. There’s even a virtual reception for the show Tuesday July 14th at 4 PM (New York time) on Facebook!

The Subtweet, How To Be an Antiracist, Know My Name, and other excellent books

Of all the excellent books I read over the course of this project, there are three that stand out as especially important and beautiful: Vivek Shraya’s The Subtweet, Ibram X Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist, and Chanel Miller’s Know My Name.

Below is the full list with links back to the posts where they are discussed in greater detail. Within each category, the books are presented from favorite to least favorite.
