Another Announcement: Carnival of Children’s Literature

UPDATE: The Carnival is up! Click here to enter.

I don’t know about you, but I’m finding that the Carnivals of Education, Homeschooling, and Unschooling are highlights of my week. So much food for thought, and such fun to encounter new blogs and new ideas. It is my great pleasure, therefore, to announce that Here in the Bonny Glen will be hosting a Carnival of Children’s Literature on Monday, February 13th. Any post related to children’s books is a candidate for inclusion: book reviews, interviews, stories about reading to your kids, literary adventures in and out of the classroom, you name it. Authors and illustrators, we’d love to hear from you, too!

Not sure what a blog carnival is? I’ll let Henry explain.

To submit a post to the Carnival of Children’s Literature, send an email to by 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 11th. Include the following information:

• Name of your blog
• URL of your blog
• Title of your post
• URL of your post
• Brief summary of the post (if you wish)

Spread the word!

The Carnival of Children’s Literature can also be found at The Truth Laid Bear’s ÜberCarnival.

    I think it depends on how many submissions come in. If we get swamped, I’ll save some for next time around. For now, keep ’em coming! 🙂

    Usually, but since many of the entries for this carnival are book reviews, I might include more than one per submitter. And extra posts can be included in a future carnival.

    Thanks for your interest!

    Troubling the Glass

    At dawn a west wind troubles the still waters of an inland lake

    Awakening the deep.

    Splashes of light like silent shouts glare
    across the water. They started in a straight forward
    way to cross the lake in the gathering dark
    but the wind rippled water broke up the
    attack and smeared out the forces of light
    into a undulating wedge.

    Muddying the greens.

    And always a mashed potato sky.

    With some people it’s the birds and the bees

    but with you it’s all buzzards and cane toads.
