The latest Carnival of Children’s Literature holds many precious gifts. Among them:
- A Study of Snow, which mentions two of our family’s favorite snow-themed children’s books: Oliver and Amanda and the Big Snow and Geraldine’s Big Snow.
- Ten Cents a Dance by Christine Fletcher — Thanks, Jen Robinson, for this excellent review.
- The Snow Maiden and the Five Laws of Storytelling, which provides an insightful look at how we are affected by books.
- Best Picture Books of 2008 — So far, the only one we’ve read is The Girl in the Castle Inside the Museum, which was wonderful, but I’m printing the entire list and taking it with me to the library.
For the person who sits on your sofa with a book in her lap and six more at her side — even if that person is you — please visit this carnival and explore the treasures therein.
