Yee ha! Happy summer, everyone.
It's the last day of school here in southern New England, and I have a list of little end-of-the-year gifts to pick up and deliver because why buy them ahead of time and be all organized and everything?
Librarians head to D.C. this weekend for the big American Library Association conference. The kidlit crew is meeting for drinks as well as celebrating the release of Mitali Perkins' new novel First Daughter. Dang. Wish I were there.
So, anyway, I must run, but here is a list of Karen MacPherson's summer reading recommendations. She writes about children's books for the Scripps news service.
