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!

    Shelf Elf, thanks for your cheering on of readergirlz! We are so lucky to have you as a friend. I can’t wait to pick up Chains – LHA is one of my great author mentors.
