Amazin' Radio Find

Hiking around  the Internet this morning, I made the most awesome discovery: a radio program called "Recess!," which is rife with children's book recommendations. It's produced by the University of Florida's Center for Children's Literature and Culture and WUFT-FM. Go, Gators.

I admire the program's mission statement. The site says,

"It is impossible at present for interested adults to find this extraordinary range of material in a place that is readily available to them. But if we wish to improve the quality of what we produce as a society for our children, we must construct places where adults can find material about children's culture, that formative  confluence of the arts and literature, of folklore and the oral tradition, of historical and biographical, social and imaginative forces -- that  are so significant to all of us in our lives."

Amen to that.

I listened to a segment on Ted Lewin's book about Macchu Picchu, which I'll look for on my next visit to the library. I can't wait to hear more.
