12th Carnival of Children's Literature

This month's Carnival of Children's Literature is up at Midwestern Lodestar. Get a cuppa and sit back and enjoy cause it's a doozy! I was going to post a book review here today but I don't think I'll make it... This month so many wonderful posts are in the links it's going to take me a while to read them all. I'm putting aside some quality "me" time and looking forward to it.

If you are new to the Carnival concept, it's a lot of fun and worth looking into. There are so many great blogs out there and new ones popping up every day. No one can keep up with them all! When you participate in a carnival you chose one of your recent posts that you think other's would enjoy or you would like to share with a wider audience, and you send the link in to whoever is hosting the carnival for the month. That's it! Everyone is welcome to participate and no one who submits gets left out. I have joined in to the last three carnivals and I have found some great new blogs that way.

This month I actually forgot to send anything in but somehow or other ZG picked up my meme post for the Torn Up Books and included it. I am tickled that she remember me. I am looking forward to getting a few more stories of other people's favorite torn up books from that! Do you have a book around your house that you or your family has torn up with reading and rereading? You should take a picture and post about it following my meme - I'd love to hear what books you've loved to tatters. Leave me a comment so I'll know where to find you.

Next month the Carnival is at Jen Robinson's Book Page, so start thinking of what you want to contribute. It can be anything even remotely concerned with books, kids, reading, teaching, writing, blogging... I'm going to be looking for your link!

I loved your meme. Had to include it! I have a wonderful old fairy tale book that my grandmother always read to me -- the good one with all the great stories like Bluebeard -- and it is held together with love and my no-nonsense Gram's electrical tape! It's still in storage from our move or I would have sent you that photo already!!
