1. The March Carnival of Children’s Literature is up! Click over to The Miss Rumphius Effect and treat yourself to a delicious selection of book reviews, author interviews, storytime activities, author tributes, and posts about writing and literacy from all over the kidlitosphere. Tricia has arranged the links in such a fun way, guaranteed to get you caught up in all the carnival excitement.


2. Special thanks to Janet at Across the Page for presenting alphabet soup with the Prolific Blogger Award: "A Prolific Blogger is one who is intellectually productive . . . keeping up an active blog that is filled with enjoyable content." It’s always nice to receive an enthusiastic nod of approval from a fellow blogger!

3. Have you seen the Periodic Table of Cupcakes? These were specially made for Jacqueline Houtman’s book launch party; her debut novel, The Reinvention of Edison Thomas, was just released this month by Front Street/Boyds Mills Press. The cupcakes were even flavored according to their chemical group. Très cool!
