The 13th Carnival of Children's Literature is up! Jen Robinson did a great job organizing this. You'll have a multitude of posts to delight your reading taste buds.
There was quite a bit of commotion around the kidlitosphere regarding Roger Sutton's post on This is why I don't have a blogroll. Or friends in response to Fuse #8's post on Sillies.
Chasing Ray addresses this in You Can't Buy My Love and Existential Crisis: First in a Series of Reviewing. Finding Wonderland has a post and an entertaining cartoon about this.
Mother Reader, Jen Robinson, Original Content, and Liz B. are other bloggers that have intelligent posts about this. All quite interesting and gives us something to think about.
[Edited to add: I just noticed Roger Sutton's post on Why Do I Review Books? Here's Grace Lin's post I'm Part of the Problem... Libby Koponen writes a post on Thoughts on Reviewers. Caroline Hickey notices the trends of first time authors for Marketing Your First Book.]
I am loving Alkelda the Gleeful's creative posts on Children's Books That Never Were. Check out this one called the MisGiving Tree.
Kelly has a fun post to think about, Books That Make Me Ask: "Am I Alone Here?"
Elaine Magliaro posted about how she would look up poems for us...I love her ending comment, "Please be reasonable in your requests." Hee hee. Well, she did it! Great job Elaine!
