"It's a Narnia Christmas" at the NY Times
December 18, 2008
Laura Miller, author of The Magician's Book: A Skeptic's Adventures in Narnia, writes an op-ed piece today, which begins,
Meanwhile, 'tis the season here at Chicken Spaghetti of The Best of the Best: Kids' Books '08, a collection of links to many year-end lists. From the Abilene Reporter News's Top Ten Texas reads to the Washington Post's audio-book recommendations, you'll find lots. One terrific new addition is from Good Comics for Kids, a new School Library Journal blog.
Although L, W, and W. is certainly good for Christmas, my favorite re-read is The Dark is Rising...

Charlotte, all our books were packed away this Christmas and Hanukkah because of construction work here at home. It was kinda weird without them.
One of these days I'll have to check out The Dark Is Rising.

I have been very interested to read The Best of the Best Kids books 08, and have spent much too long visting the linked sites. What a great way of letting parents know about the best books available for their children.
I am the published author of a children's book (up to age 8), and hope that one day, my book will appear in one of these lists. Thanks you.
