Blog housekeeping and a request for our readers

Dear Aunt Debbie,

I want to respond to the poetry question (lots to say there!), but I think it will have to wait until Monday. Right now, I'm spending some time making it easier for readers to search our blog.

Hi, readers! Let me tell you what we're doing, and ask for your help.

First, we're adding a section on the right side of the blog, under the Blog Archive, called "Book Lists." If you look there, you'll find several pages addressing different age groups: Books for babies, Picture books, etc. On each page, we'll post lists of the books we've discussed on the blog, starting from Day One. Each book title will link back to the blog post where we first discussed that book. (Check out "Picture books" to see how it will work -- that's the one I've done the most work on so far.) We'll finish the archived posts over the weekend, and keep these lists current as we post from now on.

Second, we'd like to start expanding our readership and linking to other blogs. We're starting a list of kid-lit blogs we like at the bottom of the right side of the blog. If you have other favorite blogs you go to for children's literature browsing needs, please tell us about them! You can post in the Comments section of this post, or email us at

Finally, if you're a reader who's started coming here regularly and you like what you're reading, please tell your friends! We're having fun with this, and we're thrilled to hear from you.

Love, Annie
