ongoing collaborations

The Bookstagang

Founded in 2019 by Alessandra Requena, the Bookstagang Picture Book Guild exists to connect social media influencers who include picture book content in their regular work.

The Bookstagang Guild helps members flourish professionally and socially. We collaborate on events, share opportunities, provide support and resource to reviewers, and set industry standards in regards to publisher and author relations and expectations.

Together, we maintain the integrity of the picture book reviewing community.

What do friends on the internet do when there’s a pandemic?

Start a podcast, obviously. Although currently on hiatus before Season 3 begins, you can check out some recent episodes on your favorite streaming platform! 

We invite you to join us while we discuss amazing books and issues in children’s literature, as well as early literacy, education, and parenting as it relates to reading.

We can’t wait to dig in deep and get nerdy about picture books with you!


I believe in that it is very important to ensure the accessibility of learning and information and so my practice is focused on bringing theory to practice in the classroom/learning space.
