Poking Around Kidlitosphere Central

In case you haven’t seen it yet, Kidlitosphere Central is a hub of activity/resources for the society of bloggers in children’s and young adult literature. I’m honored to be listed among its members. I spent part of the day yesterday and today poking around the membership list and wanted to share just a few interesting posts I found. You can expect more posts like this from me in the future.

From 100 Scope Notes: Three Tips for a Successful Book Fair
When I was a student, the book fair was one of my favorite school events. To my knowledge, the school where I teach does not have one, which I think is typical of a high school. I don’t know if as a librarian/media coordinator I will ever get to produce one, but if I do, I will be going back to this post for help.

From the Almost Librarian: Check It Out At Your Local Library. An excellent catalog of all the resources libraries have to offer that patrons might not know about. I would love to see this turned into a handout to be distributed at schools and libraries and maybe other places, too.

From Becky’s Book Reviews: Why Keep Blogging?
Becky asks many good questions about reviewer-author relationships, blog commenting etiquette, and explains her thoughts on these issues.

From Biblio File: Reading Journals
On the brink of filling up her current reading journal, Jennie shares photographs and asks for suggestions on a new notebook to use.

From Bildungsroman: Interviews of Hope
Little Willow is asking authors for their definition of hope and compiling links to her interviews with them at this post.

From Blue Rose Girls: libraries i have seen
Grace Lin shares photographs of the various school libraries she’s toured.

From The Book Chook: What to Do Before You Drop Everything (and read)
I missed DEAR day, which was April 12, but Susan’s methods for finding a new book are valuable any day of the year.

I hope you enjoy these posts. Look for more next time I go poking around Kidlitosphere Central!
