Weekend Update, Dec. 6-7

Chicken Spaghetti's own roundup of Year's Best Children's Books is growing. Take a peek.

For a really !wow! best of the best, including books for adults, don't miss Largehearted Boy's 2008 Year-End Online Book List.

Here's fun stop on your blogosphere tour today: Florian Cafe: Poetry Commotion. Douglas Florian is the author and artist behind such grand children's books as Insectlopedia, Laugh-eteria, and Comets, Stars, the Moon, and Mars, among many others. Camille at Book Moot first introduced me to Florian's work, and my son and I are so glad she did.
