OUT & ABOUT: June 16, 2007

I’m leaving today for a week’s vacation with family in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont. I doubt I’ll be posting again until after I return home on June 23rd. Happy Summer Solstice!


Susan Thomsen of Chicken Spaghetti has written a fine article about Poetry Friday in the kidlitosphere for Poetry Foundation.org entitled Thank Goodness It’s (Poetry) Friday. Great job, Susan!

Jules and Eisha have a stellar interview with Adrienne of What Adrienne Thinks About That (WATAT) at 7-Imp.

You may want to stop by The Miss Rumphius Effect to read Tricia’s Reflections on China post.

Alvina had an interesting post and a poll for blog readers at Blue Rose Girls early this week. Stop by and leave a comment for her.

Check out the beautiful new website of illustrator and Blue Rose Girl Linda Wingerter.

The irrepressible Three Silly Chicks have another contest to celebrate the launch of Laura Durango’s new book PEST FEST.

The Poetry Friday Roundup this week is at The Simple and the Ordinary.

Both Liz B. at A Chair, A Fireplace & A Tea Cozy and Jen at Jen Robinson’s Book Page have posted the schedule of the Summer Blast Blog Tour at their blogs. Thanks, ladies!

At A Wrung Sponge, Cloudscome has information about a haiku contest sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation. (The deadline is June 30th.)
