Coming Late To The Carnival
As usual, I didn't get to the most recent Carnival of Children's Literature at A Year of Reading until after it had been up for a few weeks. My favorite articles:

Fair Weather and The Devil in the White City: Book Review at the imponderabilia of actual life. Sandy D. discusses The Devil in the White City, a piece of adult nonfiction by Eric Larson about the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 and Fair Weather a children's novel by Richard Peck also about the Chicago World's Fair of 1893.

I haven't read either book, though I did give The Devil in the White City to a family member for Christmas a few years back. But I love the idea of approaching the same material in different ways. I will be much more likely to pick up these books as a result of reading this post.

Through imponderabilia I discovered The Newbery Project, a blog in which a group of people are reading all the Newbery winning books. It's a fascinating idea, and I'll be visiting the site.

These carnivals are well worth a look.
