Just because I was the last one picked for dodgeball doesn’t mean I don’t have a competitive nature, and I’m totally bummed that no one invited me to the Booklist editors’ gaming session at Jake’s (see the “Dark & Stormy Afternoon” posts for more info).
So rather than get mad, I’m getting even. To distract Likely Stories readers from the play-by-play of nerd vs. nerd, I’m posting about Write Time, a blog that is calling Book Links magazine “a fantastic resource for teachers and a great way for writers to keep up with what’s being published.” Write Time’s blogger, a writer/teacher/mom, became aware of Book Links through Sylvia Vardell’s blog Poetry for Children. If you’re getting ready for National Poetry Month in April, both of these blogs feature lots of food for thought on sharing poetry with children.
So take that, you nerdy game-playing editors.
