Delicious Links for January 10, 2010

January 10, 2010 @ 7:41 am | Filed under: , ,

Have resolved to make better use of my Delicious account to keep track of books I read about online and want to remember to check out. Such as:

  • The Miss Rumphius Effect: National Puzzle Month – Great Reads – “Here are some books and/or series that will encourage readers put on their thinking caps. Also included are links to related puzzling resources.” I keep forgetting to check out Winston Breen. Flagging this post so I’ll remember!
  • A Year of Reading: Predicting the Caldecott and Newbery Winners 2010Mary Lee’s Franki’s predictions, including: “My very favorite picture book of the year, as you all know is OTIS by Loren Long and it is my hope and prediction for the Caldecott.”
  • Chasing Ray – Nonfiction Books for Curious Readers – Science book recommendations including Houghton Mifflin’s Scientists in the Field series & Extreme Scientists—looks like stuff up Jane’s alley. Also of interest: “Finally, after reading Anastasia Suen’s Wired, I was reminded yet again of how valuable nonfiction picture books truly are. This patiently written step-by-step overview of electricity’s journey from dam to living room light switch is truly a brilliant book. Suen completely demystifies the process making it clear to even the least technologically inclined.”

    These are great links. As my older daughter has gotten more and more interested in reading non-fiction together, I’ve been amazed at all the wonderful non-fiction picture books that are available. We just read an amazing one after lunch, What Bluebirds Do by Pamela Kirby. Non-Fiction Monday has become my favorite blogging event.

    They are actually Franki’s Newbery/Caldecott predictions. Mine are coming later this week!
    Thanks for the linky-love, nevertheless!

    Whoops, Mary Lee, sorry about that! Thank you! I’ll correct it above. 🙂

    I loved that National Puzzle Month post as well. I had read some of them, but requested the Winston Breen book from the library. I think it’s been on my Amazon wishlist for a while.

    I’m actually inspired to get the family going on a group jigsaw puzzle — just need to find a card table somewhere!

    Delicious confuses me. I just use my Google Bookmarks :o) But this is a really cool idea for a weekly feature post!

    Oh, I’m going to put a hold on Wired right now, to read with my daughter. Thanks (to you and to Colleen).
