OUT & ABOUT: June 4, 2007

I have been a bit remiss with my Out & About posts lately—so I have some links to one or two blog articles that may be a bit dated. Nonetheless, I am including them in case you’ve missed them along the way. I know I have a difficult time keeping up with all the things being written about in the kidlitosphere. That’s one reason I always check Jen Robinson’s Book Page for her roundups.

The Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards have been announced.

Anne at Book Buds has a challenge for readers. Read about it in her Another Cosmic Giveaway post. If you’d like to win a copy of COMETS, STARS, THE MOON, AND MARS, Douglas Florian’s new collection of space poems, you'll want to check it out.

If you haven’t been to the Carnival of Children’s Literature No. 14: The Fiesta Edition, get on over to Chicken Spaghetti.

You may want to stop by the Creation Museum Carnival, too. (Thanks to Becky at Farm School for the link.)

Read 7-Imp’s interview of fiction writer Libby Koponen, the last of the Blue Rose Girls to reveal interesting tidbits about herself. It’s a sad farewell for us girls. I’d like to send my thanks to Eisha and Jules for making the interview experience so easy and so much fun.

The Poetry Friday Roundup for June 1st is at Adventures in Daily Living.

Tricia has returned from her grand adventure and has posted a bunch of great articles about her travels this morning at The Miss Rumphius Effect.

Cloudscome at A Wrung Sponge has a link to a slideshow of 24 photos she took for Project 365. Check out her Project 365: A look at May post for a glimpse of some of her wonderful pictures.

In her Poetry Friday post at A Year of Reading, Mary Lee gives us a couple of letter poems her students wrote recently. She plans to share the poems with her new students in the fall to give them a glimpse of what their school year in her classroom will be like.

Grace Lin has news about her next book project at Pacyforest.

It is very tough to keep up some week, that's for sure. New blogs keep popping up all the time. But these are some great places to visit.

I'm glad you left a comment. I was sure I had included a link to your blog--but when I checked it just now I noticed I hadn't. Then again, I've had a couple of problems with Blogger's new automatic saving of drafts.
