Edge of the Forest has a number of interesting bits this month.
Pam Coughlin (MotherReader) has an article on humor books for younger children. I found that noteworthy because humor books are often ignored by adults in kidlit.
Michael J. Ortiz has a piece on encouraging kids to read Shakespeare. One of my young relatives said, regarding having to read Romeo and Juliette, "I dreaded it all year." Needless to say, I read what Ortiz had to say.
And there is a review of Frank Cottrell Boyce' Framed. I loved his Millions and will definitely be looking for his second book.
