Where Oh Where Has the Carnival Gone?

August 26, 2007 @ 2:08 pm | Filed under:

Cclbuttonlarge I’ve had a lot of inquiries this week. What happened to the Carnival of Children’s Literature? Isn’t there going to be an August edition?

What happened is: I’ve had a ton of company this month, and no one else was lined up to host. But we’ve had some new volunteers step forward, so the CCL is back on track. Hurrah!

The August Carnival will be hosted by Silvia of Po Moyemu. She’s a champ, jumping in at the last minute to put together a Carnival before the month ends. Let’s make it easy on her by sending all submissions through the site. Follow the link and use the orange submission button there.

The deadline is 8 p.m. Eastern time on August 30th, and the Carnival will go up on August 31st.

I believe our September host will be Charlotte of Charlotte’s Library. More details about that to come.

So dust off your very best posts about children’s books from the past month, and clicky-clicky to send them Silvia’s way. And spread the word!

submission form
. The submission deadline is Sunday night. (That’s
coming up soon!)

Be sure and stop by next
week for recipes and ideas of things that you can make from scratch.

You can click
on those links to find out more, and to see past carnivals—what’s
been sent in, etc.

From the
carnival’s creator:

about something you’ve made from scratch (cooking, crafts, sewing, be
creative). Posts must be family friendly. I’m the judge of that!

"From Scratch" means different things to different people. Take bread
for instance, some would consider it "from scratch" to buy the dough
and bake it. Others wouldn’t consider it "from scratch" unless they
ground the flour themselves. I am guessing we are all somewhere between. No set
rules here, just make it at whatever level you consider "from
scratch." Archived posts are fine by me, but please only one post per blog
per week.


Made from scratch, and oh so delicious.
