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!
