asked me to create a list of books for young readers who want to know more after reading my brand-new nonfiction picture book, Glitter Everywhere! Where It Came From, Where It’s Found & Where It’s Going.

It was fun to do! You can get the details about my recommendations — and what they have to do with glitter, which may not be obvious — right here.

Meanwhile, Glitter Everywhere! itself (illustrated by Chaaya Prabhat and published by Charlesbridge) continues to gain notice from readers, which has been satisfying to see. A highlight from a favorite recent review:

Chris Barton tells the story of glitter with some history, some science, and a lot of humor in this extremely engaging nonfiction book.  The illustrations are lots of fun, and what kid is not going to want to read about glitter?
