Books and Blogs

For some reason as my brain was being idled by germs these past weeks, the world of children’s books has continued on without me, which is a very good thing. I am trying to catch up on my reading of other book blogs and have discovered several new ones in this process. Plus, there are so many books that are mentioned that I would really like to check out. (The germs may disable the main functioning part of my brain, but nothing can stop the bookish love part.)

If anyone else besides me has been living in a cave like state for a while, please do yourself a favor and check out the blogs listed to the right of here under the title “Have a minute? Then check these out!” There are a wide variety of styles and content that can be found on the list. Unfortunately, I haven’t updated the list in a while, but please check out those listed and their lists. There are a number of awesome book resources and reviews with wonderful insight. Also, if you are looking for book gifts to give in the up coming holidays these are great places to look through for ideas.

A place to start would be Big A Little a, Kidslit, Jen Robinson's Book Page, The PlanetEsme Book-A-Day Plan, Chicken Spaghetti, Fairrosa's Reading Journal, etc. Or, any of the others. They all have worthwhile information and reading.

Hope you are feeling better. Thanks for the links. We like to pass them on to our media specialists, as we did yours. I'm wondering if you will be highlighting any Christmas books. I read to a first grade class every year and would look forward to some fresh ideas. Last year I read Welcome Comfort. I also will be speaking at at Student of the Month Breakfast the first week in December for K-6 kids and parents. Last year I talked about Snowflake Bentley. I'll keep checking back...!

Welcome Comfort and Snowflake Bentley are two really good ones. I do have a few book titles for the holidays that I like to share that are really good for the K-6 crowd. I will probably put a list together toward the end of the month. Thanks for dropping in.

One great Christmas book is "A Wish for Wings that Work."

I've been a bit out of the blog loop myself this week, but I am reading your post now, and wanted to say a belated thanks for mentioning me in your list of starting places. Thanks for the other resources, too! I do love this kidlitosphere thing, that's for sure.
