Elf Envy: Random Round Up

A few goodies around the kidlitosphere:

As if we needed further proof that the divas at readergirlz are an unstoppable force. Now they’ve launched a readergirlz blog. Awesome. Also – there’s a new diva in town… Melissa Walker, author of the Violet on the Runway series.

I almost feel like just linking to Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast and saying, “Go look around.” There’s so much juicy goodness over there on Jules and Eisha’s site. I must say though, that I particularly enjoyed their Seven Questions Over Breakfast with David Ezra Stein. He’s seems like a cool fella.

Mother Reader offers us a trio of picture books with a Presidential theme. (Go America. Go Barack! Woo hoo!)

Be sure to keep a close eye on the Cybils blog for lots of great reviews of some of the nominated books, interviews with authors and roundtables introducing the fab first-round panelists. It just keeps getting better and better!

Jen R’s recent review of Laurie Halse Anderson’s Chains should inspire just about anyone to grab a copy. Sounds like just the right book to mark this historic day.

That’s it for now!
