Robert's Snow: first week schedule

I am very excited to be part of the Robert's Snow blog fest starting this week. This is an online auction to benefit the Dana Farber Institute for cancer research. Bloggers are highlighting the children's book illustrators that have contributed beautifully designed and created snowflakes. You can view all the 2007 snowflakes here. The whole blog fest is organized by Jules and Eisha from Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. Jules explained recently:

"Over 150 illustrators were chosen by approximately 65 bloggers, and they will be featuring the snowflake-making illustrators (some of them, but not all of them, by any means) for the Robert’s Snow 2007 online auctions, starting October 15 and all the way up until the day before the first auction, November 18. That means that during that time, about four or five illustrators a day will be featured at various blogs, even on Saturdays and Sundays."

At the Robert’s Snow 2007 online auctions you can see the snowflakes and bid on the ones you like. All the proceeds go towards cancer research so it is a wonderful cause to support and a great way to start holiday gift shopping!

Visit these blogs this week to read about the illustrators and see their snowflakes. Here is this week's schedule of blog highlights:

(Thanks to Jen Robinson for compiling all these links.) Please notice that I am interviewing Linas Alsenas right here at A Wrung Sponge on Saturday, October 20. WOO HOO!! I am so thrilled to be a part of this and I look forward to really learning a lot about all these fabulous children's book illustrators as well as helping support Robert’s Snow.
