News of the Day

From Jen Robinson’s Book Page

So much is going on around the Kidlitosphere this week. Here are a couple of things not to be missed:

KidspicksJennifer Donovan has started a new monthly feature at 5 Minutes for Books: Kids’ Picks carnival. She says that the goal is to “give everyone a chance to share what their children have loved reading that month — whether the child is two or twelve or seventeen…The goal is to just talk children’s books, and specifically what they like (not necessarily what we like or what we want them to like).” More than a dozen people have participated so far, and it’s a nice window into the books that kids enjoy. I am really liking the 5 Minutes for Books blog.

Bookbloggerbutton2There is another fun contest at My Friend Amy for BBAW. Complete the sentence “You know you’re a book addict when…” Sadly, I think that the official contest is over, but some of the entries are tremendously entertaining.

KidlitlogoThe preliminary schedule is up for theKidlitosphere Conference in Portland. It’s going to be a great time! The last day to register is next Tuesday, the 23rd.

CybilslogosmallAnd last, but definitely not least, the next set of panelists for the Cybils has been announced: Fiction Picture Books, headed by the ever-capable and fun MotherReader. And don’t miss the organizer profiles for Anastasia Suen (Easy Readers) and Kelly Fineman (Poetry).
