Morning Notes: No Independence from Big Brother Edition
DECORATING WITH THE BEST
School Library Journal had a good idea – take A Fuse #8 Production’s Top 100 Picture Books and Children’s Novels polls and turn them into fancy PDFs for everyone to enjoy. You can sign up now and they will send them to your inbox when they are released. I haven’t seen them yet, but I’m already having visions of hanging them up in my school libraries. Click here to sign up for the picture books PDF. Click here to sign up for the children’s novels PDF.
Author Kate Messner wrote an article about Pinterest for the July issue of School Library Journal. She kindly mentions me in there too. If you’re curious about the service, click here to check it out.
