Friday Kid Lit Round-Up

Hutch_coverSMHi folks! I'm sure many of you are familiar with the work of Peter H. Reynolds, so you'll be even more thrilled to know he has a store.  If you're not able to make a run over to the Blue Bunny in Dedham, MA for February Break, check out the online shop or their new publication, Hutch: A Creative Magazine for Kids and Grown Up Kids.

Maria_blogWith all the hype and hoopla surrounding the Caldecott and Newbery Awards, folks might begin to wonder how relevant these awards are. Over on Reading Rockets: Page by Page, that exact question came up, and with some interesting answers.

Joey King has been busy in front of the camera as the latest child to portray Ramona. Fan's of Beverly Cleary's Ramona Quimby will be thrilled to know this movie is in the works.

Over on Kitchen Table Reviews, Mir and company are talking about one of my favorites this week:

Daughter: It was like a fairy tale, sort of. Only it was real. I mean, it seems fairy tale-ish, how he dreams about dinosaurs, and then gets to build them, and how he gets to travel and learn and have people cheer for his work,

Son: Yeah, I usually like fiction a lot better than non-fiction. But this was totally interesting and read like a fiction story. And dinosaurs are like dragons!

Jump on over there to see what book I like to feature in professional development book talks.

This last subject had my poor brain thinking I had ingested one too many spoonfuls of cold medication. Have you ever contemplated what kind of zombie Jane Austen would make?  How about a magic power wielding Jane? Then you're in luck! Click on over to Finding Wonderland to find out.

And with that my friends, I'm off to begin February Break. Fear not! We'll be right back here on Monday with all sorts of crunchy kid lit goodness.
