Homegrown Hobbies
By the LJ and SLJ editors
The hobby of collecting is well-suited for our current era of isolation and social distancing. It entails activities you can and often need to do from home, including sorting and organizing your stuff, doing research, and scouring the internet for items you might want to purchase. For many people, collecting was a childhood pastime that they have continued to pursue or are rediscovering. Others are using their extra time at home to begin a new collection. We offer advice on getting started

We also honor National Hispanic Heritage Month with selections of kidlit and YA titles as well as picture book biographies.
