Spring is right around the corner, but it's still a little too chilly to go outside. If you're stuck inside like me, here are a couple of sites for you to check out.
Carnival of Children's Literature
The February Carnival of Children's Literature is up at Anastasia Suen's Picture Book of the Day. What's a carnival, you ask? It's a collection of posts on a specific topic, and bloggers submit their posts to a carnival host where he/she compiles them for your reading enjoyment. The Carnival of Children's Literature is held monthly, and this month more than 30 bloggers submitted their links. In honor of Leap Year, the theme was "Leap Into a Book". I urge you to check it out. There's some great stuff!
The Edge of the Forest
The February edition of The Edge of the Forest is also up for your reading pleasure. The Edge of the Forest is a monthly online journal devoted to children's literature.
Here's a glimpse of what you can find in this month's edition:
- An interview with Eric Rohmann, by Julie M. Prince
