Links of Note

In light of recent world events (i.e., the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile), during the entire month of March Sylvan Dell would like to offer their Panda's Earthquake Escape for free in eBook form. This book will be available on their website. You can view the book by CLICKING HERE.

Sylvan Dell, if you haven't caught on, is one of my favorite children's book publishers and this particular title offers parents and teachers a great way to approach the topic of these earthquakes with younger children.

Check out Pandas' Earthquake Escape.


Booking Mama hosts a weekly carnival called the Kid Konnection wherein you can link up your personal children's book reviews that you have written over the course of the past week. For more information, visit Booking Mama's site.

This is a great opportunity to focus on children's literature and I've learned about some new titles by participating in this carnival.

Thanks, Booking Mama!


Zoe at Playing By the Book wrote up a perfectly awesome post on Putting Images to Sound which she linked up to Read Aloud Thursday yesterday. If you missed it, go take a peek! It's awesome! (But then, most of her ideas are.)


Lastly, if you are curious about librarians, you might be interested in checking out a copy of This Book is Overdue which I reviewed over at 5 Minutes for Books. We also have a copy to giveaway if you are interested.

Lastly, you've asked to see pictures of my local library? Stay tuned. I'm looking forward to making the introduction!


  1. Hi Carrie,

    Very kind of you to link to my post yesterday :-) M has really gotten into listening to music and then writing a short story to go with it - we've done it three times this week now, and I'm so happy that she is enjoying it so much.

    I didn't know about Booking Mama - so thank you for highlighting her - it's right up my street!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  2. I read the Panda ebook. Really well done story. You've turned me into a big Sylvan Dell fan as well!!
