Kelli Gleiner
Kelli is an author, fiber artist, and art educator in Cincinnati, Ohio. She holds a BFA in drawing and painting from Bowling Green State University. She’s taught art in the public and private sectors, made a lot of coffee, stayed home with a little human, wrote grants for a nonprofit, and coordinated events for the best children’s bookstore in the world, all while making art.

Her two board books, Cheer Up, Monster and A Day With Monster, feature a quirky felted monster/abominable snowman friend that was popular on her (now defunct) Etsy site, and are available now from blue manatee press. 

Following on from Love Grows Everywhere, A Pinch of Love is Barry Timms and Tisha Lee’s second book on the subject of love—this time celebrating the love that comes through baking, cooking, and sharing food.

In this beautiful story told in rhyming verse, a boy and his grandmother are preparing for a big neighborhood bake-off. See the loving (and sticky!) moments of their tender relationship, along with the many other warm bonds that exist within their community.

Barry Timms’ gentle text skillfully links these loving moments with the love that is represented by the food, while Tisha Lee’s lush illustrations give real depth to this vibrant and diverse neighborhood.

This book is a warm and charming tale, perfect for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
