Got an email from JacketFlap, a children’s literature portal, this morning telling me that my blog had been added to their service.  How nice! And when I visited their site, I found much more than I expected.  They have an incredible list of children’s publishers, an active forum, a children’s publishing blog reader that follows 161 blogs, an enormous blogroll that has my fingers itching to explore by clicking around, and a free customizable personal page for visitors to select the blogs they wish to follow.  It is all professionally done, with a crisp clean feel that invites you to explore.

You will notice a link to them on the right side of my blog as well, so that you can easily start reading this blog via their interface.
