Weekend Reviews: Early Edition

Dragging myself out of my blogging slump to let you know that the New York Times Children's Book Special is now available online. There are many great reviews and articles to explore, including "Books about Scary Things," "Introductions to Poetry," and "Books about Darkness."

And speaking of the New York Times, Judith Warner's column on Obama's win and why it is important to people who came of age in the Reagan era is the best (or most personally-relevant) analysis I've read on the events of this week to date. (That Reagan story happened to me too, only in California and I was in 7th grade, not 10th.) And, don't miss the photo posted towards the end of the column.
