The Pearl

Having mentioned Nancy Pearl's wiki the other day, I realized too late that I didn't mention her upcoming non-fiction work, due on shelves everywhere in April and entitled Book Crush. Much like her previous work Book Lust, Book Crush is a grouping of children's book recommendations. At first I was a little skeptical that Ms. Pearl would know all that much about kidlit, but my sources inform me that she began her librarian career as a specialist in children's literature. So there you go.

By the way, let's not stop adding our own kidlit blogs to her wiki of blog info. I only see five of us listed (well done, Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, Biblio File, Semicolon, and Big A, little a). Let's represent, people.

I just added a Children's Literature Blog page. The URL is:

I copied into it the children's lit blogs mentioned in the "Other Book Related Blogs" page --- yours, Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, Semicolon, Biblio File, and Big A little a.

To add yours just click "Edit the content" on the right and go for it! And if things are working right, please fix! Anyone can do so.

Monica, you are a wonder. It looks lovely. But with only a smidgen of the kidlit bloggers appearing, we need more. MORE, I say! MORE!

I just need to clarify that Biblio File is not exclusively kidlit. It's just kidlit and YA heavy!

Ditto to what Jennie said -- ditto for Seven Impossible Things, that is, but we're so children's-lit heavy that sometimes I wonder if we shouldn't be exclusively that. Anyway, thanks, Monica.
