San Francisco's Summer Reading

SF Gate, the online branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, features lots of reviews of children's books for Sunday, May 28th. One of them is the excellent Sky Boys, Deborah Hopkinson's story of the construction of the Empire State Building. Other reviews center on California-related reads, including the John Muir biography that blogger Chris Barton cited last week. Beginning chapter books   get a nod; Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride and especially its author, Kate DiCamillo, receive high praise. You'll also find science fiction, local Bay area authors, and more.

Isn't it a funny thing that I, living in San Jose, learn about San Francisco reviews from you out in New England? Cool, but funny. Hope that you're having a good weekend.

It's a hoot, isn't it? I think the Gate does pretty well covering children's lit. Nobody here in the US, though, compares to the UK papers, who cover more literature in general.

Can't wait to look at what you have reccommended.

Carolyn! Howdy, girl! So good to see you here!
