Amy Uptain, who blogs at Hope Is the Word, is a Cybils veteran, Round 2 judge in Nonfiction Picture Books–and today's featured blogger. A former teacher and librarian, she currently is a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom of three young children. She blogs about her life, parenting, and home education as well as about the books she reads. Fun fact: she hosts an Armchair Cybils!
One of the books Amy reviewed for her Read-Aloud Thursday feature was Cybils Fiction Picture Books finalist Creepy Carrots! written by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown, a title that also got starred reviews from both Kirkus and Publishers Weekly. In her review, Amy says:

least to one Jasper Rabbit.
