The October Carnival of Children's Literature: Snuggle Up With a Good Children's Book

Happy October! I hope you're going over to the Cybils site and nominating your favorite children's and young adult books that have been published this year (between Jan 1 and Oct 15).

It's going to be a busy month, and I'm excited to be hosting the October Carnival of Children's Literature. What is the Carnival you ask? According to the description on the Carnival site, it's a "collection of posts about children's books: book reviews, interviews, stories from parents and teachers about their kids' adventures with books, peeks into the studio of children's book authors and illustrators, and more. " Each month bloggers submit their favorite posts of the month, and a Carnival host rounds them up.

In my part of the world, we're finally starting to experience the cool, crisp air of Fall - the kind of weather that makes me want to snuggle up with a good book and read all day.

So, this month's theme is "Snuggle Up With a Good Children's Book."

Submit your posts here by Friday, the 24th, and I'll post the Carnival on the 26th. Happy reading and snuggling!


  1. Good theme! I'm looking forward to the collection.

    Looking ahead: I'm hosting the November carnival with a suggested topic "The Gifts of Literacy and Reading".

  2. Thanks a lot for a bunch of good tips. I look forward to reading more on the topic in the future. Keep up the good work! This blog is going to be great resource. Love reading it.
