Poetry Friday: "Cat Poems"
Children's Literature Blogs at The Horn Book

Announcement: Carnival of Children's Lit No. 14

Humanhtml The 14th Carnival of Children's Literature will be held right here at Chicken Spaghetti on Monday, May 21st. The deadline for submissions is Thursday, May 17th.

There's a theme: Fiesta! A Multicultural Celebration. The theme is for fun; I love a good fiesta. If you have a book-related post on another subject, that's fine, too. (No web-based original fiction, please. That's another carnival altogether.)

The focus of each Carnival  is children's books and reading. One entry per person is welcome. (Decide ahead of time which entry you would like to submit. I wish I had time to pick them myself, but, alas...) When submitting the link to your Fiesta! post, include these particulars:

1. Your name
2. The name of the blog, the title of your post, and the post's URL.

You can submit your links in two ways.

1. Email me at c_spaghettiATyahooDOTcom (Replace the AT and the DOT with the real things.) Write "Carnival of Children's Literature" in the email's subject line.


2. Use the form at the Blog Carnival site, which forwards email to me.

If you're wondering what a blog carnival is, I wrote an explanation back in March. Also check out Jen Robinson's wonderful April Carnival of Children's Literature.

Spread the word, and polish your party shoes!

Man, I could just use yesterday's entry which was about a poetry book in English and Spanish. Then, for the first time ever, I'd be ahead of the game.

Oh, yeah, MR. Perfecto!

Just submitted my post - that must be the most prompt response from me EVER ! *faints*

Thanks for the submission, Michele!

Fiesta? Really? (I hate to be a party-pooper, but I had to bring it up.)

Yep. Fiesta. I've always wanted to go to the one in San Antonio.


Are you serving guacamole? I'm so there!

Actually,...oh shoot. I have to keep it a secret. My newest love is the photography at Wikimedia Commons.
