All aboard to Take a Ride on the Reading Railroad, the latest Carnival of Children's Literature hosted by Charlotte's Library. So put away the Monopoly board for now and get reading!
And a bit late (sorry...) -- the September issue of The Edge of the Forest is up, with many features. I was delighted to find Kelly Herold's discussion of the different Anglo-American versions of Baba Yaga tales in her article, "Baba Yaga Heads West". Lots of other good stuff, too!
Also, a reminder that the deadline for LiteracyTeacher's Picture Book Carnival, Part 3 is coming up. Submissions are due by Friday, October 5.
And two new blogs of note from new-to-me homeschoolers,
Learning. Living. Books!, with two posts so far, "What Are 'Living Books'?" and "Twaddle Dee, Twaddle Dum"
A Storybook Life, KalexaLott's thoughts on nature, children's literature, poetry, and simple wonder.
