I am happy because WordPress has brought back the gently falling snow to Shelf Elf, and it will be there until January 4th. Right now, outside my window it is raining and absolutely foul. Nothing even a tiny bit Christmas-y. Well… ha! I will make my own Christmas, right here on my blog, where it is snowing prettily.
Here are a few links to delightful things that they Elf likes around the kidlitosphere this week:
Check out Kate Messner’s piece in SLJ on using Twitter in the classroom. Now there’s a hip teacher.
Stacy at Welcome to My Tweendom loved Calamity Jack. I want it.
If you have a tween on your gift list, you must check out Sarah’s posts on Tween Book Buying Ideas for the Holidays over at The Reading Zone.
Mother Reader can help out with gift ideas too, with her personal Best of 2009 list.
Feeling desperate for some delish art? Then be sure to read 7 Imp’s post on Matthew Cordell, Steve Jenkins and Scott Magoon. Wowza! That’s a lot of talent.
Enjoy the snowflakes everyone.
