Hot off the press! Dip your spoon into the coolness:

Check out Oprah’s Book Club Kids Reading List. So happy to see Linda Sue Park’s Keeping Score, Cynthia Kadohata’s Cracker: The Best Dog in Vietnam, Jackie Urbanovic’s Duck Soup, and Laura Vaccaro Seeger’s Dog and Bear: Two Friends, Three Stories on the list. Check out my interviews with Jackie, here and here, and Laura, here!
Don’t forget that the Second Annual 2008 Portland Kidlitosphere Conference is a little over a month away. Find out how to register here.

Isn’t it delicious?
Enjoy and stay cool!
