A few announcements:
1. What are the best children's books of 2007? It's that time of the year again—time to gear up for the Children's and YA Bloggers Literary Awards, a.k.a the Cybils. If you write about children's books at your blog and have an interest in volunteering on an awards committee, go to this post at the spiffed-up Cybils web site. Soon all readers—bloggers and non-bloggers—will be able to nominate their favorite titles, too.
2. The next Carnival of Children's Literature takes place at Charlotte's Library on September 26th. The deadline for submissions is Friday, September 21st. Use the submission form linked at the Blog Carnival site.
3. The September Learning in the Great Outdoors blog carnival is going on right now at Alone on a Limb. You'll find lots of great ideas for enjoying and studying nature with children, plus some beautiful photographs of monarch butterflies.
