Some of you may be readers of Amanda Snow's blog A Patchwork of Books. Though I don't know Amanda personally, I've enjoyed her blog frequently since discovering it earlier this year. Amanda is a librarian, and she writes thorough and thoughtful reviews of children's books.
This spring, Amanda and her husband welcomed their son to the world, born three months prematurely. Jacob lived his four-month life in a hospital, but he was surrounded by love, and by books, until his death in September.
Recently, Charlotte at the blog Charlotte's Library, came up with a way to honor Jacob and his family. It's a lovely tribute. For details, click here.
