So here's what's new to me:
- A Year in Reading and their 100 Cool Teachers. A belated welcome, Mary Lee and Franki!
- L.Lee Lowe has begun serializing a YA novel called Mortal Ghost. Two chapters are up, so head on over and read!
- Pooja Makhijani has written a great article, "Here to Stay: South Asian Literature for Children and Teens," for PaperTigers.org. The opening paragraph is cringe-worthy: "As I was growing up, I would search library shelves in the hopes of finding a character 'like me'. I never had much luck. One day, my elementary school librarian excitedly handed me a tattered copy of The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. 'It's set in India,' she squealed. 'It's the perfect book for you!'" Thanks, Pooja, for the work you do.
- Oh! And, Alan Silberberg (of Pond Scum fame) has a blog!
