Friday Kid Lit Round-Up

Beedle Hey folks. 

With The Tales of Beedle the Bard now officially on shelves, I thought you might like to see one of the originals.  Ink Splot 26's Carly and Karen were at the unveiling of the book at New York Public Library where one of the original handwritten copies will be on display until January 4, 2009. Take a look at their video and photos of the event.

We have some catching up to do.  Before the big Thanksgiving festivities took place, our own blogger Jill White went a bit batty.  Well in her studies anyway.  Find out more about her bat unit, complete with some great books.

If you’re looking for more bat themed info, check out Bats in the Library author Brian Lies.  He has directions for bugmallows, a confection sure to be a hit with students.

As reported by Chicken Spaghetti, “It's that time of year again; everyone is compiling a Best of the Year List, including…”  I have you curious, don’t I?  Check out the New York Times Book Review and Publisher’s Weekly picks amongst others. If you have blogged about your favorite book of 2008, add it to the Kid Lit Kit Best Books of 2008 Blog Round-Up by emailing Sonja your post.

And with that folks, I’m going to find the makings of a good bugmallow, brew up a cup of tea and reread Bats at the Beach.  I’ll see you next week..
