Tied with Jen Robinson for Best Kidlit Blog

Oh my goodness! I am so happy, excited, honored, and elated to have tied with Jen Robinson's Book Page for the honor of Best KidLit Blog for Book Blogger Appreciation Week, hosted by My Friend Amy.

First off, thanks to everyone who both nominated and voted for The Well-Read Child. When I started this blog in November last year, I had no idea that I would become part of a wonderful blogging community full of people who were just as passionate about children's books and literacy as me. I had no idea that I would be up until 3 in the morning writing about books and loving it.

And to be sharing this honor with Jen Robinson is unbelievable. She is a rock star in my eyes, and her dedication to children's literature and growing readers is evident. She provides very detailed and thorough reviews and combs the internet for tons of news, resources, and information. Seriously, if you haven't seen her blog yet or signed up for her weekly newsletter, I don't know what you're waiting for. Congrats Jen!

Congrats to all of the nominees, also! There are so many other fantastic kidlit blogs that weren't nominated, so I encourage you to check out some of my favorite that are listed on the right-hand side of my blog.

Finally, many thanks to Amy for organizing this event! It's been wonderful.


  1. The first of many congrats, I'm sure! I didn't realize I had added you to my Reader just after you started writing. Cool! I can say I knew you *when*. Congrats again.

  2. It's a pleasure to be sharing this with you, Jill! I had a meeting this morning, but will get a post up about it soon. What a nice way to start the day.

  3. Thanks Terry,
    It's hard to believe it hasn't even been a year!

    Definitely a great way to start the day.

  4. Congratulations on your win! :)

  5. Thanks N. Vasillis and Jennifer!
