New York Times' Best Illustrated, Carnegie Long List, and More

In tomorrow's New York Times Book Review, look for the Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2009. If you can't wait until then, check them out online now!

News from the UK: the Kate Greenaway Medal and Carnegie Medal long lists. The Greenaway is the equivalent of the US's Caldecott and the Carnegie the same of the Newbery.

A new lineup of the year's best science books for children was announced by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books collected a large number of titles for its 2009 holiday gift guide.

All of these and more have been added to Chicken Spaghetti's "Best Children's Books 2009: The Big List of Lists," which is growing every day.

More present-spotting at Wired magazine's GeekDad blog, where John Baichtal presents "Holiday Gift Guide #1: Books." On his list is The Geek Atlas: 128 Places Where Science and Technology Come Alive. (I've gotta get it.) You'll find some children's books here, too.
