NPR Interviews

NPR : Weekend Edition for Sunday, October 12, 2003
This NPR show offers two sections of interest to children’s lit fans. First is an interview with Peter Sis who just became a MacArthur Fellow this year. The second is an interview with Mark Haddon, author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. The interviews can be found lower on the page and are in audio format.

Children's Software

Choosing Children’s Software
We are starting a circulating collection of software in our library, and I am searching for sites that review software. There are lots of sites for games for older ages, but I was having trouble finding ones for kids. Then I found this site. If you click on the reviews tab at the top of the page, you will find you can search their past reviews by software title.
If anyone knows of other sites that review software for kids (with no sign-up fee), please post them to the comments.

This official site is now being updated more regularly. Though they promise monthly messages directly from the author, the last one posted was in May.
