Out & About: December 2, 2007

Horn Book Fanfare: Best Books of 2007 is now online!

The Banbury Cross Children’s Book Shop has lots of great books to recommend in its 2007 Winter/Holiday Newsletter.

Head on over to Mother Reader for the November Carnival of Children’s Literature: Tips Edition.

Check out Lunchbox Poems, an online journal feature at the website of the Poetry Foundation. The article was written by the dynamic duo of 7-Imp, Julie Danielson and Eisha Prather.

Many thanks to Heidi Estrin who left a comment at my Christmas & Hanukkah Books post. She provided information about some new holiday books: Letter on the Wind: A Chanukah Tale and Like a Maccabee. Check out Hooray for Hanukkah!, the December 2007 episode of her podcast at The Book of Life, for interviews with Sarah Lamstein and Barbara Bietz, the authors of these new Hanukkah titles. You’ll also find a complete online version (a flip book) of Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins provided by Lookybook there! The Poetry Friday Roundup for November 30th is at Two Writing Teachers.

Check out Friday Afternoon Visits: Book Plates, Book Reviews, and e-Book Readers at Jen Robinson’s Book Page. Jen’s got lots of links to a variety of interesting articles and blog posts.

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.

Hi Elaine! Glad you liked my Hanukkah suggestions, and thanks for mentioning The Book of Life podcast. FYI, I've just added an embeddable flash player for anyone who wants instant access to the show from their own website, PLUS some really fun audio of Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief. Enjoy!
