MotherReader plays host to the February Carnival of Children's Literature.

Kelly Fineman interviews Joyce Sidman at the Cybils site, and Wordswimmer's Bruce Black also chats with the award-winning poet. Our copy of Butterfly Eyes and Other Secrets of the Meadow is on order. Is yours?

Two new blogs recently joined the kidlitosphere: Library Stew and Book Book Book. Welcome!

Do the canines in children's books need a quick trip to the ASPCA's spay/neuter clinic? The Gelflog provides some supporting evidence, with a laugh-out-loud headline. (Gelflog link via Maud Newton)

My blogging pals at A Year of Reading and Check It Out comment on the Higher Power of Lucky controversy.

Thanks for the link to my site! And for the link to the Carnival, though it's even more opportunity for me to procrastinate on all the stuff I'm suppposed to be doing...


Thanks for providing all these links. I hope people will read the interviews with Joyce Sidman. She is one of the finest poets writing for children.

I was inspired to write a poem, Book Talk 2007, because of "The Great Scrotum Debate."


I enjoyed the interview with Joyce Sidman. Thanks for the minetioned

thanks for the mention and for the links - I am catching up today, home with a sick child!!
